?In his book, Acoustic Microscopy: Fundamentals and Applications, Roman Maev has written an authoritative account of the fundamentals and applications of the technique.? (Physics Today, October ) From the Back Cover. This only and up-to-date monograph on this versatile methods covers its use in a range of applications spanning the fields of Cited by: Detection of the defocused transfer function of a confocal reflection acoustic microscope (SAM) by imaging of a step and a sphere Author(s): Pavel Zinin; Wieland Weise; Siegfried Boseck. This work offers detailed discussions on all aspects of acousto-optic deflectors, modulators and tunable filters, emphasizing hands-on procedures for design, fabrication and testing. It contains previously unpublished treatments of acousto-optic device design and impedance matching, permitting the actual design of real devices and device-matching circuits.   Roman Gr. Maev received his Ph.D. from the Physical Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences in and his in acoustic microscopy from the Russian Academy of Sciences, Moscow, in From to , he held a post as Director of the Acoustic Microscopy Center of the Russian Academy of Sciences, then established the Centre for .

Visualization of back reflected acoustic waves in paratellurite single crystals by means of acousto-optics Author(s): Oleg Yu. Makarov ; Vitaly B. Voloshinov. Acousto-optical elements have successfully replaced planar filters in many positions. The white confocal, regarded as the fully spectrally tunable confocal microscope, was not possible without this technique. Acousto-optical elements are highly transparent, quickly tunable and allow many colors to be managed simultaneously. As they show a strong dependence in polarization and .

Introduction. Optics has had a very long and full history, from ancient Greece, through the renaissance and modern times. As with optics, acoustics has a history of similar duration, again starting with the ancient Greeks. In contrast, the acousto-optic effect has had a relatively short history, beginning with Brillouin predicting the diffraction of light by an acoustic wave, being . The acoustic wave passing along an AO deflector acts as a moving diffraction grating with a period λ A, equal to the acoustic wavelength. The light of wavelength λ 0, which passes through the AO cell, is split into two beams; one is in the direction of the incident beam and the other is deflected by an angle Δ θ = λ 0 / λ A. The particular acoustic technique considered here is acoustic microscopy. This technique is analogous to well-known confocal optical microscopy, but with the light source and optical lens effectively replaced by a source of sound waves (an electro-mechanical device known as a sound transducer) and an acoustic by: 2.
