Two-Phonon Absorption
Hamilton, M. W.
European Journal of Physics, v28 n2 p341-349 Mar 2007
A nonlinear aspect of the acousto-optic interaction that is analogous to multi-photon absorption is discussed. An experiment is described in which the second-order acousto-optically scattered intensity is measured and found to scale with the square of the acoustic intensity. This experiment using a commercially available acousto-optic modulator is a suitable example of nonlinear response for undergraduate practical work. (Contains 5 figures.)
