4 March 1986 Materials For Large Time Apurture Bragg Cell
Author Affiliations +
A guide for the selection of materials for large time aperture Bragg cells is presented. Effects of acoustic attenuation and acoustic nonlinearities are analyzed and the results are applied to summarize the material and performance trade-off. Since optical quality and relatively large optical aperture size are the fundamental requirements for a large time aperture Bragg cell, this analysis is limited to high quality optical materials such as Tellurium dioxide, TeD2 .
