Editorial Reviews

A reference/text that describes all aspects of acousto-optic signal processing, from the theory of acousto-optic interaction and basic devices to the practical applications of both frequency- and time- domain signal processing systems. Addressing difficult implementation issues associated with the insertion of acousto-optic processors into systems applications, this edition (first was 1986) contains new information on topics including spectrum analysis, signal correlation, signal delay applications, image processing, and photonic switching. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
a good review of the field, coupled with practical information on implementation."
