Paper Abstract

We show a possibility of realizing an optical memory using dynamic refreshment. Via phase-correct back-coupling by means of nonlinear optical phase-conjugation the information stored in a photorefractive crystal is periodically read out, transmitted into a second crystal acting as an auxiliary memory and from this transmitted back into the first crystal. In this way the information is refreshed.
