A multichannel acousto-optic Bragg cell was made by the joining of acousto-optic cells that have the shape of symmetrical trapezoidal prisms. This acousto-optic Bragg cell has an aperture length equal to the sum of its component acousto-optic cells but has an aperture time equal to that of each acousto-optic cell. We tested the performance of the multichannel acousto-optic Bragg cell by joining six TeO2 acousto-optic cells together with 300-µm gaps between one another. The holographic fringe data prepared by computer were divided into six equal segments. Each data segment was again divided into six equal parts and then fed into the corresponding acousto-optic cell. The holographic images were reconstructed by the periodical illumination of a green (λ = 0.5145 µm) pulse laser beam onto the multichannel acousto-optic Bragg cell. The reconstructed images are sharp and clear. This indicates that the multichannel acousto-optic Bragg cell is working properly.
