All-fiber and fiber compatible acousto-optic modulators with potential biomedical applications Conference Paper uri icon


  • ABSTRACT All-fiber acousto-optic (AO) devices such as frequency shifters, phase, intensity and polarization modulators, tunable filters and multiplexers have been developed in the last decade mostly for their importance in fiber optic communication systems. However they can equally have potential uses in bio sensing and fiber based biomedical systems. We present the design, construction and performance of a number of all-fiber and fiber compatible acousto-optic modulators that particularly phase and polarization modulators …
