Paper Abstract

This paper discusses the dynamic range improvement of acousto-optic receivers. Two basic architectures are discussed: the direct detection approach and the interferometric (heterodyne) detection approach. The interferometric spectra analyzer was implemented using a cascade-cell configuration. The system demonstrated a two-tone spurious-free dynamic range of 50 dB above tangential sensitivity.
