Develops the underlying theory of acousto-optics from first principles, formulating results suitable for subsequent calculations and design. Special attention is given to design procedures for the entire range of acousto-optic devices and a wide variety of applications for these devices is also described. Further topics include bulk wave and thin-film devices, transducer theory, isotropic and birefringent interaction. Suitable for use as a textbook or practical design handbook, includes generous problem sections illustrating important characteristics of TeO2, LN, and GaP.
