Paper Abstract

We propose an all-optical interconnection with pattern memory function by a photorefractive full-linear resonator with a beam splitter(BS) and a self-pumped phase conjugate mirror(CAT). This interconnection utilizes the oscillation phenomenon between the BS and the CAT. This resonance beam rewrites and sustains the connection pattern continuously, which is once configured by the writing beam, after the writing beam is turned off. We analyze the optimum reflectivity of the BS and the CAT, which determines the feedback rate of the resonation, for high connection efficiency. We also analyze the coupling strength threshold of the photorefractive crystal for the sustentation of the connection. We experiment on the photorefractive full-linear resonator in order to examine the efficiency and the sustentation time of the connection.
