Abstract

Strong interaction is the preferred (high-efficiency) mode of operation in acousto-optic devices. Yet most theories of strong interaction use simplifying assumptions, such as sharply bounded sound columns, which are often unrealistic. The theory presented in this paper makes no such assumptions; it describes strong acousto-optic interaction as a multiple scattering of plane waves.
