Paper Abstract

In this paper, we propose an application of the mutually pumped phase conjugation to the all-optical connection switch and present the two type of the bi-directional cross connector with the photorefractive crystals, the polarized beam splitters and the half-wave plates in terms of the control method. In the type 1 connector, the bypass mode or the exchange mode can be selected by the external control beam whose polarization is orthogonal with those of the signal beams. In the type 2 connector, these modes can be controlled by rotating the polarization of the signal beams. We give the basic experimental result of these connectors with BaTiO3 crystals and Ar+ laser, and discuss about the results.
