A novel approach for one and two dimensional acoustooptic deflector design is presented. Two dimensional deflectors are optimally built of two adjacent Bragg cells in acoustically rotated configuration. The depleting effect of second order diffraction is compensated by a small change of the optical incidence angle. High bandwidth devices working below 100 MHz acoustic frequency and 1 W acoustic power are reported. Several experimental results on deflectors for 633 nm and 1064 nm optical wavelengths are presented.
