Paper Abstract

Today, many of the applications that employ lasers require the laser to be modulated and deflected. The dominant devices to perform these tasks are acousto-optic and electro-optic modulators. The principles of operation and the applications of each method are different. This paper will describe the principles of operation and the applications of acousto-optic Bragg cells and electro-optic Pockel's cells.
