Simulation of the Acousto-optic Interaction in an Optical Bistable Device

Abstract

In this paper, a computer-aided simulation of the relation between peak phase delay and laserintensity ,at different values of the Klein-Cook parameter of the fourth order diffraction, waspresented. The numerical results describing the sound-light interaction in LiNbO3 crystal withand without feedback were presented and discussed. Also, the relations between laserintensities and the acousto-optic frequency and the values of Klein-Cook parameter werestudied. The results were applied to an optical bistable device using MATLAB software.
