Paper Abstract

The technology of surface acoustic wave (SAW) optical frequency shifters is discussed. The construction and operation of such a device with a sideband suppression of 35 dB and a carrier suppression of 29 dB is described. A two pass version of this device gave a conversion efficiency of 10% for 2.5W input electrical power.
