Acousto-optic Modulator Market

Acousto-optic Modulator Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast, 2020–2030

Acousto-optic Modulator: Introduction

  • An acousto-optic modulator (AOM) is a device used to control and modulate the power of a laser beam with an electrical drive signal
  • AOM uses sound waves within a crystal to create a diffraction grating. The amount of diffracted light varies proportionally, as the power of the applied RF signal is varied.
  • One of the major factors in selecting a modulator is the required speed of a modulator, as it influences the choice of material, modulator design, and RF driver to be used. The speed of the modulator is described by the rise time, which is proportional to the time required for the acoustic wave to traverse the optical beam.
  • The modulators are made from gallium phosphide, tellurium dioxide, indium phosphide, or fused quartz for the visible and near infrared regions
  • Acousto-optic modulator is used in various end-use industries such as aerospace & defense, healthcare, IT& telecom, oil & gas, semiconductor & electronics, and others

Rise in Demand for Laser Applications in Life Science and Scientific Research Field

  • Acousto-optic modulators are largely used in life science and scientific research, as these are utilized in laser scanning, printing, and material processing, among other applications
  • Demand for acoustic-optic modulators has increased in scientific research, as the research is conducted in various fields such as photoacoustic imaging, imaging cytometry, optical coherence tomography, and multiphoton microscopy in biomedical imaging and scanning
  • Usage of acousto-optic modulators helps to modulate the frequency and intensity of laser beams for laser scanning applications
  • In order to improve the accuracy of acousto-optic modulators, various factors are taken into consideration such as use of advanced technology, optical power, beam diameter, rise time, and desired contrast ratio
  • The factors above drive demand for acousto-optic modulators in the scientific research field, which in turn is projected to propel the global acousto-optic modulator market during the forecast period
  • However, high initial cost and increase in requirement-specific research and development expenses on this technology are anticipated to hamper the growth of the global acousto-optic modulator market.

North America to Lead the Global Acousto-optic Modulator Market

  • In terms of region, the global acousto-optic modulator market can be segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and South America
  • North America is expected to dominate the global acousto-optic modulator market during the forecast period, as a large number of manufacturers of acousto-optic modulators operate in the region
  • A number of well-established players based in North America focus on development of new technology in acousto-optic modulators, which is likely to augment the acousto-optic modulator market in the region from 2020 to 2030
  • The acousto-optic modulator market in Europe and Asia Pacific is projected to grow at a rapid pace during the forecast period. On the other hand, the market in Middle East & Africa and South America is anticipated to expand at a moderate pace from 2020 to 2030.
