Paper Abstract

Binary holographic phase gratings, also known as Dammann gratings, can be electronically synthesized by using the acousto-optic effect. We review the field of digital phase grating optics, and discuss some of their modern applications. We present the underlying grating theory and describe an approach to realizing these gratings in an acousto-optic device. Potential applications include Fourier domain signal processing, matched filtering, optical interconnects, and switches for digital optical computing.
