20 September 1982 High Performance Acousto-Optic Devices: Solutions To Fresnel Field Problems
Author Affiliations +
When high performance is demanded of an acousto-optic device, certain effects that are usually considered negligible become evident. Fresnel near field effects frequently become important when high efficiency and/or high bandwidth is demanded of a modulator. Large aperture and high resolution deflectors are also effected by acoustic field variations. The design of the transducer and the electrode can be used to alleviate many of these effects.
