Acousto-Optic Effect

  1. Mar 22, 2006 #1
    Hello all,

    I'm looking for a good reference to explain the Acousto-Optic effect from scratch.

    Note that I would prefer more mathematical references, but intuitive references can also be of help.

    The best thing would be a book or a paper that I might be able to find in my university's library.

    Thanks in advance.

    A theoretical explanation should be found on "Quantum electronics" YARIV. Look it up

    Acousto-optics by Adrian Korpel is teh difinitive graduate text on the subject. Watch out for the typos though, when I took the course we spent the entire semseter rederiving every line in the text. Learned alot doing it and when I look at teh book and notes I realize just how much I remember.
