Paper Abstract

A brief report on an ongoing study concerned with the responses of acousto-optic modulators (AOMs) and deflectors (AODs) exposed to linearly accelerated electrons, gamma rays, and X rays is presented. The diffracted spatial intensities of PbMoO4, TeO2, and InP devices were observed to undergo displacements and attenuation. Discussions of radiation- induced temperature gradients and color center formation believed to be responsible for these effects are included.
