Paper Abstract

Mercurous halide crystals (Hg2C12, Hg2Br2 and Hg2I2) possess unique acousto-optic properties which include very low acoustic velocities and high figures of merit. These properties make mercurous halide Bragg cells very desirable for various EW signal processing applications which are not possible with other acousto-optic materials. This paper discusses and compares the crystals' properties and optimum operating conditions, and identifies the systems' implications for certain EW signal processing applications. The devices' development status is also discussed.
