Paper Abstract

Acoustic transient phenomena induced piezoelectrically by high voltage switching pulses can greatly affect the shutter operation. The sensitivity and the spatial resolution of a photographic method developed for visualisation of acoustic transients in electrooptic light modulators is improved by applying a linear array of 256 photodiodes. The spatial distribution of the strain and the time dependence of the acoustic pulse shape is investigated.
