Paper Abstract

Two methods of AOTF bandpass broadening are compared: multi-frequency generation and frequency-modulated ultrasound. The principal goal is to increase the optical throughput and signal-to-noise ratio of AOTF-based spectrometers. We present a simplified model of linear frequency-modulated mode, which make easy qualitative analysis of that operation model. Using the model we derived exact formulas for AOTF field-of-view and the total optical throughput raise with bandpass broadening and we found that AOTF field-of-view is much larger in the linear frequency modulation (LFM) mode. We conclude that for imaging applications of AOTF-based spectral elements, LFM mode of bandwidth control is more efficient than multi-frequency mode.
