Paper Abstract

This paper analyzes the device characteristics of acousto-optic Bragg cells for signal processing applications. Design parameters of efficiency, bandwidth, resolution and sidelobes, and distortion are considered. Phase distortion is of particular importance in imaging type acousto-optic signal processors such as correlators and convolvers. Techniques for optimizing these performance factors are discussed.
