Paper Abstract

If an acousto-optic spectrum analyzer (AOSA) operates in a low-frequency range, the lowest frequencies of the spectrum to be analyzed may produce higher orders of diffraction. This creates the frequency bandwidth limitation of one octave for such a device. The present paper is devoted to some methods allowing to avoid this limitations. Such methods as data decoding using the inverse part of the device transmission function, higher order suppression by means of employing the Bragg cell with specific form of its frequency characteristic, and prolongation of Bragg diffraction frequency area to the lower frequencies using some peculiarities of anisotropic Bragg diffraction. Some experimental results illustrating the discussed method have been demonstrated.
