Paper Abstract

We consider physical principles of a two-phonon light scattering in crystals in a special case, when direct transitions between all the orders of scattering are allowed and, moreover, the probabilities of these transitions can be regulated electronically. The exact and closed analytical model for describing this process is presented. The feasibility of exploiting such a phenomenon for creation of an all-optical logic is substantiated. A few possibilities of arranging the optical logic gates are revealed. Fulfilling a set of logic operations is algorithmically analyzed and estimated.
