Paper Abstract

Both theoretical and experimental analysis is carried out of dynamics describing the information data transfer over the ring by means of switching waves propagating in the plane of bistable layer in direction that is perpendicular to the direction of control and information laser beams. The design and experimental realization is reported of all-optical planar loop circuit demonstrator based on the nonlinear thin-film semiconductor interferometer in the framework of transverse `lock-and-clock' architecture. All-optical and optoelectronic `planar-free space' circuits of such kind can be used for the development and construction of optical systems for digital (and analog) processing, transfer and spatial switching of light information signals.
