Paper Abstract

The paper is devoted to the theoretical and experimental investigation of Bragg diffraction of light by shear acoustic waves in tellurium dioxide single crystal. Various cases of Bragg anisotropic interaction accompanied by a change of optical modes in the material are examined. Unknown types of isotropic diffraction of light by shear acoustic waves in paratellurite are investigated as well. Frequency dependencies of Bragg angles for different interaction types in the crystal are calculated and measured thus confirming the basic statement that not only the traditional anisotropic but also previously unknown isotropic regimes of AO interaction may be simultaneously observed in the birefringent crystal.
