Abstract

A hybrid technique for wide-bandwidth high-resolution acoustooptic spectrum analysis is described that combines features of 2-D space-integrating and time-integrating techniques. Performance features include extended small-signal detectability, improved optical efficiency, and insensitivity to high frequency laser noise. An optically transformed periodic chirp provides a distributed local oscillator that permits wide system bandwidth.
