Paper Abstract

Significant advances have been made in both integrated magnetooptics and integrated acoustooptics in recent years. In this paper similarities in the basic Bragg interaction geometry and the characteristics associated with acoustooptics (AO) and magnetooptic (MO) Bragg diffractions, and a comparison of the resulting AO and MO Bragg cell modulators in center carrier frequency, bandwidth and their electronic tunability, modulation/switching speed, diffraction efficiency, substrate material, and fabrication technologies are presented. Further R and D toward ultimate realization of integrated AO and MO device modules are also discussed.
