Paper Abstract

Acousto optic filters (AOF) with optical size approximately 8 - 10 mm for visible and ultraviolet spectrum on the base of TeO2 and KH2 PO4 crystals correspondingly are developed and manufactured. The spectral resolution is better than 1 nm. The frequency bandwidth of both filters is 55 - 90 MHz, that allows us to use the only high frequency generator with two different power amplifiers. Acoustic power level for the AOFs on the base of TeO2 and KH2PO4 was about 1 W and 5 W, respectively. The optical tuning is carried out by means of a computer program.
