Paper Abstract

We discuss the capabilities of thermally induced refractive nonlinear logic devices and holographic optical elements for applications in all-optical signal processing and optical digital computing. Optimisation of switching speed and energy based on the present experimental data allow us to believe that operation rates as high as 1012 Hz-cm-2 are possible.
