Paper Abstract

Recently, there appeared in acousto-optics (AO) a tendency to develop the optical information processing technology based on AO spatial light modulators, which are very promising in relation to very fast analog signal processing and algebraic data processing with digital accuracy. The best widely distinguished way to win many other marketing counterparts lies in the performance of AO interactions in guided wave structures with highly developed planar technology. In contrast to numerous developments devoted to guided wave AO devices the collinear ones facilitate multichannel or 2-D-devices to increase their throughput and processing gain. We discuss general backgrounds of the guided wave AO devices, especially in the case of the collinear wave propagations. Some applications similar to the multichannel collinear AO Bragg cell on LiNbO for 2-D-beam scanning, AO spectrum analysis, 2-D- Fourier signal processing, frequency multiplexing/demultiplexing, and digital vector-matrix multiplication are presented.
