Paper Abstract

The diffraction of light through the acousto-optic (AO) and electro-optic (EO) effects provides the mechanism for optical signal processing and has been investigated by several authors [1]. However, the same crystals can often be used for either effect which offers the possibility of simultaneous acousto-electro-optic (AEO) interaction and points to an additional signal processing capability. Studies have been done in bulk wave devices and in the Raman-Nath regime of surface acoustic wave (SAW) devices [2]. We present new results in the Bragg regime of SAW AEO devices.
