SMD Frequency Shifters for opto-electronic Micro-Integration
SMD (Surface Mount Device) acousto-optic frequency shifters are compact devices designed for opto-electronic integration, allowing for seamless integration into various miniaturised optical systems. These frequency shifters utilize acousto-optic interaction to shift the frequency of light signals.
The basic principle of an acousto-optic frequency shifter involves the interaction between an acoustic wave and an optical wave within a medium. The acoustic wave creates a periodic modulation of the refractive index, which in turn induces a phase shift in the optical wave. This phase shift results in a frequency shift of the optical signal.
SMD acousto-optic frequency shifters are designed to be surface-mounted onto a printed circuit board (PCB) or integrated onto a micro optical bench, making them suitable for compact and integrated optical systems. They come in ultra-compact packages with standardised footprints, allowing for easy integration with other optical or electronics components.
When selecting an SMD acousto-optic frequency shifter for opto-electronic integration, it's important to consider the specific frequency range, efficiency, insertion loss, reaction time and size requirements for your application. Additionally, it is advisable to consult QUBIG to ensure compatibility and optimal performance within your system.
SMD Light Modulators

The union of electronics with optics and their miniaturization has a significant impact beyond simply the reduction in complexity, size, and vulnerability in today ́s industrial plants and systems. An establishment of Quantum Technology in industry, aerospace, or daily life will fail without considering the industrial implementation of those highly sensitive and complex systems. QUBIG offers a new family of light modulators compatible with surface mount technology to facilitate integration into complex systems.
