Paper Abstract

In this paper we present a new application of acoustooptic cell used as a fast deflector. First, we have measured the principal performance of the acoustooptic cell like the diffraction efficiency, the number of deflection points, the switching time and the geometry of the diffracted beam. Afterwards we present an application of the optical fast deflector for telecommunication network. It is an optical packets synchronizer device based on the association of acoustooptic cell and fiber delay lines.
