Acoustooptic Devices and Their Applications
The development of lasers and laser technology has sharply intensified research on devices for controlling optical radiation. Acoustooptic devices rank among the most important of these control devices. This volume represents the systematic compilation of the theory of the acoustooptic effect and covers the design principles of the corresponding devices and their application settings. Also examined are the characteristics of the most promising acoustooptic materials for the visible and infrared ranges.
