Abstract
THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROGRAM IS TO FABRICATE AN INLINE FIBER-OPTIC MODULATOR. WITH OUR EXPERIENCE IN BUILDING ACOUSTO-OPTIC DEVICES WE HAVE DEVELOPED A UNIQUE BONDING TECHNIQUE WHICH ALLOWS US TO BOND ANY PIEZOELECTRIC CRYSTAL TO ANY SUBSTRATE. IN THE LAST THREE YEARS, BRIMROSE HAS BEEN A PIONEER IN DESIGNING AND CONSTRUTING ACOUSTOOPTIC LASER BEAM DEFLECTORS. IN 1984, WE WERE THE FIRST COMPANY TO COMMERCIALLY INTRODUCE A 1-D 40% DIFFRACTION EFFICIENCY LASER BEAM DEFLECTOR FROM GALLIUM PHOSPHIDE (GAP) THAT OPERATES AT 1 GHZ CENTER FREQUENCY WITH A DEFLECTION ANGLE OF 10 DEGREES FOR A HENE LASER. IN PHASE I UTILIZING OUR PROPRIETARY BONDING TECHNIQUES WE WOULD LIKE TO BUILD SUCH A DEVICE IN WHICH A LINBO3 LONGITUDINAL TRANSDUCER IS BONDED TO A BIREFRINGENT OPTICAL FIBER.
