Paper Abstract

A novel technique has been demonstrated for increasing the efficiency of bulk wave Bragg devices. The technique consists of returning the undeflected Io beam through the sound wave a multiplicity of times, allowing a series of acousto/optic interactions which contribute to the overall deflection efficiency of the Bragg cell. This technique has been demonstrated both with experimental benchtop assemblies and in monolithic form with 3-5dB improvements in deflected optical power. Research results, tradeoffs, and conclusions are discussed.
