Acousto-optic modulation using a new chlorotellurite glass
We report results of initial tests on an acousto-optic modulator using a new chlorotellurite glass which has the composition 3TeO2 - 2ZnCl2. This glass exhibits wider transparency range (0.42 - 5.7µm) than other tellurite glasses with approximately the same figures of merit. We obtained 80% diffraction loss and 65% diffraction efficiency at the wavelength 633 nm, using an 80 MHz piezoelectric transducer with dimensions 15x1 mm and using 1.5 W, of RF power. This glass is able to convert to fiber form allowing for efficient in-fiber acousto-optic modulators to be built.

Abstract

We report results of initial tests on an acousto-optic modulator using a new chlorotellurite glass which has the composition 3TeO2 - 2ZnCl2. This glass exhibits wider transparency range (0.42 - 5.7µm) than other tellurite glasses with approximately the same figures of merit. We obtained 80% diffraction loss and 65% diffraction efficiency at the wavelength 633 nm, using an 80 MHz piezoelectric transducer with dimensions 15x1 mm and using 1.5 W, of RF power. This glass is able to convert to fiber form allowing for efficient in-fiber acousto-optic modulators to be built.
