Paper Abstract

This paper describes the application of acousto-optic (AO) spectrum analysis techniques to astronomical spectrometers. The design of a 2 GHz bandwidth AO spectrometer and the performance limitations of the technology are discussed. Two alternative architectures are proposed. The new approaches appear promising for increasing the instantaneous bandwidth to greater than 5 GHz.
