Paper Abstract

A specific case of a multi-phonon non-collinear light scattering in optically uniaxial media is presented. Compared to our previous studies, an innovation lies in the fact that now we consider passing just the quartet of incident light beams through a single crystal that is perturbed by the triplet of coherent acoustic waves. The exact and closed analytical model for describing this strongly nonlinear phenomenon is developed. In fact, specially designed regime of a four-order light scattering whit direct coupling of all the light modes, when transitions of four input light beams into four output light modes are allowed and electronically controlled, is examined. The feasibility of applying such an effect to an all-optical computing and performing an all-optical adder is analyzed.
