Abstract

Acousto-optic programmable dispersive filters (AOPDF) can compensate in real time for large amounts of group-delay dispersion. This feature can be used in chirped-pulse amplification femtosecond laser chains to compensate adaptively for dispersion. An analytical expression relating the group delay at the output of the AOPDF to the input acoustic signal is obtained with coupled-wave theory in the case of collinear and quasi-collinear bulk acousto-optic interactions and also in the case of planar waveguides and optical fibers. With this relation, the acoustic signal that will induce an arbitrary group-delay variation with frequency can be easily obtained. Numerical simulations are shown to support the principle of arbitrary group-delay control with an AOPDF.
