Theoretical and Experimental Study of Light Deviation by Strong Acousto-Optic Interaction I. Theory
A general theory of interaction of light with microwave sound is formulated. Based on Maxwell's equation, the solution is given in a simple matrix form E(x) = A(x) E(0), where E(x) is a vector whose components are the diffracted field amplitudes, A(x) a unitary matrix function of acoustic strain and of geometry, and E(0) the amplitude of the impinging field. This theory is extended to cover the case of an inhomogeneous transducer. Excellent electromechanical transducer technology and a thorough theoretical study led to high performance light deviators.
