Abstract

The acoustic absorption loss in a standing wave acoustooptic modulator produces a temperature rise in the acoustooptic medium that can lead to distortion, discrete transitions, and hysteresis in curves of diffracted optical power vs frequency or temperature. Experimental data obtained with a barium sodium niobate standing wave modulator are presented.
