This work offers detailed discussions on all aspects of acousto-optic deflectors, modulators and tunable filters, emphasizing hands-on procedures for design, fabrication and testing. It contains previously unpublished treatments of acousto-optic device design and impedance matching, permitting the actual design of real devices and device-matching circuits.
". . .this is another important book on acousto-optics in the Optical Engineering Series. "
". . .It is perfect for anyone starting out in the field of AO and wishing to obtain hands-on material. For those already in the field, it is a handy reference. "
