Paper Abstract

The tunable acousto-optic filter has been described principally in terms of its capabilities as a rapid access spectrometer, and work has been reported on its multispectral imaging properties as well. Such filters are well adapted to microcomputer interfacing for control functions and hybrid optical-electronic operation. One of the most significant features of the device is the ability to rapidly scan a large spectral range, for example, the entire visible in less than 100 TJseconds, or to randomly access any of a number of selected wavelengths either singly or simultaneously. Applications have been reported in such fields as astronomical imaging and fiber optic systems, as well as the more conventional spectroscopic applications.
