Where can I get technical and pricing information ? Please send your request to the distributor in charge of your country -see our section "AA worldwide" to get the corresponding contact. If you cannot find, please send directly your RFQ to AA sales team who will help you.
Where can I find an operating manual ? You can download AA operating manuals on our restricted web access. Please create your own account to access this part and download our operating manuals, when your access will be confirmed.
Where can I find technical and theoritical information ? You can download our application and theoritical notes in our section "Download documents". You can also visit our website www.acoustooptic.com.
Damage during transportation: what do I need to do ? In case you receive your parcel in a damage condition, you need to make a reserve notification to the carrier, and send by fax within 3 days a letter to the carrier company and to AA notifying the damage.
Which are the main parameters to specify, if I request an AO product ? The necessary parameters depend on the product you are interested in. In any case, it is very important to specify the type of application, as well as to define and characterize the optical source (wavelength, diameter, polarization, power, divergence). In a second hand, it is important for us that you define the "philosophy" of your need: do you need a design to cost product or a design to performance one ? Is it for a large quantity or a single each ? What will be the environment....
-For Modulators: rise time, extinction ratio
-For Frequency shifters: is it a fixed or variable frequency version, frequency shift value (+or-), rise time if necessary
-For deflectors: resolution or scan angle, way to drive (random access or raster scan)
-For Q-switches: wavelength, polarization, diameter, M², amount of losses
-For AOTF: wavelength tuning range, optical resolution, FOV, aperture
