Coupled wave equation group of surface acoustic wave (SAW) acousto-electro-optic (AEO) effect are given and correlative conversion efficiency formula is obtained. An collinear SAW AEO modulator with xy-cut lithium niobate (LN) substrate is made. Curves of relative conversion efficiency vs electric power, direct current (dc) voltage and frequency are measured. Additional dc voltages can change the center frequency of the modulator. This device has applications in optic signal processing and optic communication.
