Abstract

The characteristics of a dual-input hybrid acousto-optic device are investigated numerically and experimentally. The device, which operates as a set-reset flip-flop, uses the well-known bistable acousto-optic device with feedback to which two input beams are applied. The resulting flip-flop is analyzed numerically by use of nonlinear dynamical and nonlinear circuit-modeling techniques, and some of its properties are demonstrated experimentally.
