Paper Abstract

We consider physical principles of realizing the Bragg regime of two- and three-fold scattering of light in optically anisotropic crystals in specially elaborated cases, when direct transitions between all the orders of scattering are allowed and, moreover, the probabilities of these transitions can be controlled. The exact and closed analytical models for describing these cases are developed. The performed analysis reveals an optical nonlinearity governed by an external electronic signal, and computer simulations illustrate the obtained results. Possible applications lie in the fields of controlling light with light and all-optical logic-based switching. Here, in particular, all-optical multi-bit digital registers are presented.
