Paper Abstract

The acousto-optical processor (AOP) is based on an acousto-optical spectrum analyzer with a CCD photodetector operating in special pipeline mode (shift-and-add mode), which allows spectral components of the input signal to be added with controlled time delay immediately in the CCD photodetector. The proposed AOP was successfully used on radiotelescope RT-64 (Kalyazin Radio Astronomy Observatory FIAN) for the observation of pulsars at 1 .4 GHz in 45 MHz bandwidth. The AOP frequency scale calibration allows increasing accuracy of measurement of time of arrival radioemission pulses. Experimental results on investigation of AOP work on RT-64 and radioemission pulses profiles for pulsar PSR 1937+21 are submitted.
