Acousto-optics is a branch of physics that studies the interactions between sound waves and light waves, especially the diffraction of laser light by ultrasound or sound in general.
Design and manufacturing of acousto-optic devices and associated radio-frequency drivers.
The Acousto-Optic Modulator and Optical Heterodyning
Discussion paper from the Department of Physics, Middlebury College. Includes diagrams and references.
Acousto-Optical Effect: Deflectors
Optical deflectors are intended for the spatial control of optical beams.
The principle of operation of these filters is based on the dependence of the diffracted light wavelength on the acoustic frequency. This article considers non-collinear filters based on a single TeO2 crystal.
Article from Wikipedia on this branch of physics that studies the interactions between sound waves and light waves, especially the diffraction of laser light by ultrasound or sound in general.
New 3-D Acousto-Optic Instruments for Small Scale Oceanic Measurements
Discussion paper by Jules Jaffe, Ed Reuss, Andrew Palowitch, Duncan McGehee and Girish Chandran. Includes diagrams and references.
