Paper Abstract

Mercurous bromide crystals with very good optical transparency were grown by the physical vapor transport method. A design was developed to fabricate 10-degree orientation acousto-optic tunable filters operating in the mid and long wavelength regions. An acousto-optic tunable filter (AOTF) was fabricated using a crystal with a 13-15 mm diameter. A theoretical tuning curve for a mercurous bromide crystal based AOTF using this design was also computed for the first time.
