Paper Abstract

This paper describes recent results obtained during the experimental development of a holographic optical neural network based upon the spectrally selective recording properties of spectral hole burning materials. This general architecture has been initially tested as a bi-directional associative memory system (a subclass of neural networks). The results obtained clearly demonstrate the fundamental ability to fully connect two 2D planes of digital information. Expectations are that this architecture can be extended to capacities of 1012 interconnects or greater in a modest form factor system.
