Paper Abstract

The essential requirements of all-optical digital computing systems are high diffraction efficiency optical interconnects and low switch energy logic elements. In this article we discuss our results in design and construction of holographic optical elements with > 90% diffraction efficiency and switching elements which require < 25 pJ of switching energy.
