Abstract

A linear scanning light deflector, or Bragg-cell, is a widely utilized acousto-optic (AO) signal processing device. Its application is, however, limited due to its line scanning property. To overcome this deficiency an area (or matrix) scanning deflector can be built by consecutively placing two, orthogonally positioned, linear deflectors. A more sophisticated method, however, is the realization of a 'monolithic' area scanning device, or 2-D (XY-) deflector, that contains a single Bragg cell. If each dimension of the cell has several input channels the element can serve as a special optical processor in various applications. In this work a multichannel XY-deflector is examined with special regard to its utilization as a fast optical crossbar switch and matrix processor. An experimental set-up with a 2* 2 channel cell is also demonstrated.
