In this paper, we give the design equations and a procedure for the complete specification of the design parameters for a wide bandwidth acousto-optic modulator (AOM). Although the modulating medium, transducer material, and bonding agents determine the modulator performance, we concentrate here on the question of how to design an AOM, given specifications on its minimum modulation bandwidth, diffraction efficiency, and the maximum ellipticity of the output beam.
