Paper Abstract

The possibility of efficiently using metamaterials in acousto-optics has been demonstrated. Diffraction of light in heterogeneous medium with non-uniform spatial distribution of dielectric nanoparticles taking into account absorption of light is investigated. It is shown that by changing the concentration of dielectric nanoparticles in the medium, complete elimination of side oscillations and suppression of the “tails” of the diffraction reflection curve can be achieved. The possibility of controlling the hardware function of acousto-optic devices by changing the material, concentration, size, shape and spatial orientation of the inclusions, as well as the polarization of the incident radiation is shown. It is shown, that extremely large electric field enhancement can be observed in an anisotropic crystal in the presence of spatial apodization of the amplitude or abrupt change in the phase of acoustic wave.
