Paper Abstract

Inhomogeneous and anisotropic materials offer a rich variety of possibilities for constructing novel and efficient electro-optic and acousto-optic devices. Here we illustrate this by discussing some aspects of the acousto-optics of TeO2, a material having a high degree of acoustic anisotropy, giving a design example. We also present some recent results concerning the electro-optics and acousto-optics of inhomogeneous structures, in the form of periodically poled LiNbO3.
