A new efficient in-fibre acousto-optic phase modulator is demonstrated in which the acoustic wave is focused onto the fibre by reflection from a cylindrical surface. The device exhibits a phase modulation of 2.63 radians at the light wavelength of 1550 nm, using an RF frequency of 86 MHz and a power of 1W.
