Paper Abstract

We have proposed the all-optical interconnection, in which the photorefractive four wave mixing (FWM) is used as the core, by full-linear resonator (FR) with a beam splitter (BS) and a self-pumped phase conjugate mirror (CAT). The index grating of the FWM region inside the photorefractive crystal (PRC), which determines the connection pattern, was maintained by the rewriting effect of the input signal beam and the resonance beam between the CAT and the BS. But the power of the resonance beam was wasted by the optical reflection at the crystal surface of the CAT and the PRC. Therefore the rewriting effect of the connection pattern could not be obtianed sufficiently. In this report, we propose the integrated full-linear resonator (IFR), in which a self-pumped phase conjugation (SPPC) region and the FWM region are formed in one PRC, to solve this problem. Compared with the conventional FR, the power loss of the resonance beam by the optical reflection can be prevented and the resonance beam can be used efficiently for the maintenance of the connection pattern. We experiment on the 2×2 all-optical interconnection with the IFT by using BaTiO3 crystals and Ar+ laser. It is shown that the maintenance time of the connection pattern can be extended sufficiently by using IFR.
