Acoustooptic spectral estimation: a statistical analysis
The power spectral density estimate obtained by an acoustooptic (AO) system is analyzed. We find that the variance of the estimate depends on the ratio T2 /T1, where T1 is the aperture of the AO cell and T2 is the integration time of the detector.
