Paper Abstract

The development of efficient infrared acoustooptic materials along with techniques for growing these materials as large single crystals of good optical quality has extended the operating spectral range of acoustooptic tunable filters into the near and mid-infrared. As a result, it is now possible to construct compact, high-throughput infrared spectral analyzers controlled by microcomputers. We describe here the design and operation of such a filter, and discuss results of some tests of its application as an infrared gas analyzer.
