Temporal and spatial distribution of temperature field was studied in operating acousto-optic devices on base of large-size paratellurite crystals. The study was carried out in real time by means of thermal imaging technique. Dynamics of heat release in a hot deflector and a hot tunable filter was examined at different frequencies and driving electric power levels applied to piezoelectric transducers. The study was also based on measurements of standing wave ratio and analysis of the Smith charts.
