Paper Abstract

The technique of acousto-optic spectrum analysis can be used to improve the signal to noise of r.f. signals by the noncoherent integration of photoelectrons in a properly configured optical sensor. The requirements placed upon the sensor and acousto-optic device to obtain a given processing gain, resolution, analysis bandwidth, and dynamic range are discussed for bulk optical devices.
