Paper Abstract

Acousto-optic cells have found a major application in providing compact real-time electrical to optical transducers for optical signal processing systems(1). Such acousto-optic devices with bandwidths up to 1.0 GHz(2) and time bandwidth products exceeding 1000 may be configured with other optical components and devices to perform signal spectrum analysis, correlation, and signal sorting. This paper will present a conceptual overview of the principal acousto-optic techniques available for processing of wideband electronic signals.
