The integrated acousto-optic filter (AOF) has found many applications in optical signal processing, from fast scanning optical spectroscopy to routing in wavelength-division-multiplexed (WDM) systems, to femtosecond pulse shaping. Devices fabricated by integrated optical and acoustic technology on x-cut LiNbO3 have the ability to filter, or to switch between output ports, one or many independent nanometer-wide wavelength channels.
