          Abstract

          Numerical Calculations are employed to study the modulation of light by surface acoustic waves (SAWs) in photonic band gap (PBG) structures. The on/off contrast ratio in PBG switch based on optical cavity is determined as a function of the SAW induced dielectric modulation. We show that these structures exhibit high contrast ratios even for moderate acousto-optic coupling
