Paper Abstract

In this paper we discuss the design and construction of holographic optical elements (HOEs) and their applications in conjunction with thermally induced refractive nonlinear logic devices in the demonstration of the first generation of all-optical logic circuits. The diffraction efficiencies for these HOEs are > 90% whilst switch energy of < 25 pJ for pixellated, micrometer-dimension logic elements are predicted.
