By an accurate theoretical analysis, an equivalent point is found where the filtered optic wave lengths of the two acoustic-optic reactions of “e in o out” and “o in e out” are the same with the same acoustic frequency. Two cases of δ=0 and δ≠0 are discussed and compared. The merits of the equivalent point is discussed in different points of view. The discussions conclude that the parameters set around the equivalent point leading to the optimum designing.
