Paper Abstract

Operation of a bulk acoustic wave (BAW) spectrum analyzer is similar to a coherent optical Fourier transformer. In our experimental device an array of phased acoustic transducers serves as a coherent radiation source as well as spatial modulator. This device is modeled by its optical equivalence, applying many of the well developed diffraction formulation used in optics. The theoretical development is supplimented by experimental results. The data indicates effective signal channelization where the diffraction side lobes are suppressed considerably.
