Abstract
In order to study the mechanisms of acoustooptic interactions in a channel waveguide structure, multimode crossed channel waveguides are fabricated on YZ LiNb03 substrate. Besides, an intedigital transduce centered at 320 MHz is made on the same substrate for AO interaction by its generated surface acoustic wave. Butt coupling is used for the coupling between Helium-Neon Laser and channel waveguide. The mode conversion due to the AO interaction in multimode channel waveguide is found. This mode conversions only occur among harmonic modes but not TE to TM modes. Those phenomena are studied and demonstrated theoretically and experimentally. In conclusion, the mode conversion of AO interaction in channel waveguide structure is caused by the acoustic beam spread. This result can be explained by phase matching condition.
