Abstract

A reflective optical modulator based on acousto-optic modulation of light by a mirror corrugated with surface acoustic waves is presented. Modulation of optical amplitude, frequency, and phase is demonstrated at visible (633- and 488-nm) and deep UV (244-nm) wavelengths. The reflective modulator has eight channels and achieves a maximum first-order diffraction efficiency of 6.0%.
