Paper Abstract

We present an unconventional technique of shaping the optical pulses via collinear acousto-optical interaction. To this purpose strongly coupled acousto-optical states are used because their velocity of propagation depends on the intensities of interacting waves and, consequently, it can be controlled electronically or all-optically. During the analysis, the method of phase trajectories is applied and developed. A new device capable of controlling the time- delay of digital data flow entering into a high-bit-rate optical information processing systems, is proposed and discussed.
