Paper Abstract

Photorefractive materials are capable, at relatively low optical power, of recording volume phase holograms in real time with very high diffraction efficiency and of phase conjugating one or more laser beams (either mutually coherent or incoherent). These unique capabilities offer tremendous potential for applications in optical storage, interconnection and signal and image processing. This paper gives a brief review of some device concepts in each of these areas. Selected examples are given to qualitatively explain the basic principle and their potential merit. Technical issues that need to be addressed to improve the performance of various devices are also discussed.
