Abstract

The change of polarization that is produced on a transmitted light beam by acoustic surface waves propagating on a yz-LiNbO3 plate is analyzed. When using a crossed polarizer and analyzer for optimizing the signal-to-noise ratio, the best conditions of diffraction efficiency have been found at an angle of incidence approximately equal to −10°.
