Paper Abstract

Acousto-optic tunable filters (AOTF) have found their area of application mostly related to spectrum analysis of different media in environmental studies. However, the AOTF ability to select the particular color from multicolor incident light beam can be used in the light projection system. As acousto-optic devices based on the same Bragg cells can both select color and deflect the beam, it is possible to perform the projection of different color images. Some configurations of such systems has been discussed in the presented paper. It has been shown that one of the most important parameters defining the system ability to form color images of good quality is information transmission capability of al the system and of its components as well. It is especially related to acousto- optic components: AOTF, modulators and deflectors. The signal transmission through the proposed system has been considered for some versions of its implementation. Along with that the possible amount of information which can be transmitted simultaneously through the system, has been considered, and the links of the system which can limit the total information transmission, have been found. In conclusion, separate problems that could be solved using the projection systems composing different acousto-optic devices including AOTF, have been defined.
