Realization of magnetostatic forward volume wave (MSFVW)-based guided-wave magneto-optic (MO) Bragg cells and their applications to communications and signal processing are reported. Bragg diffraction of guided-optical waves from the MSFVW in a noncollinear coplanar geometry is analyzed. The design of microstrip line transducers that facilitate wideband MO Bragg diffraction with electronically tunable microwave carrier frequencies (2.0 to 12.0 GHz) are briefly discussed. Experimental results obtained with the resulting Bragg cells in both pure and bismuth-doped yttrium-iron-garnet (YIG) waveguides and a comparison to the theoretical predictions are presented. Applications of the Bragg cells to light beam modulation, scanning/switching, and RF spectral analysis are presented in detail
