Abstract:

Our work shows that photochemicals materials can be used successfully in optical signal processors. Ultraviolet lasers will provide higher energy densities at the photochromic surface. These energy densities are obtained without the necessity for high numerical aperture optical elements, thus permitting greater design flexibility. These lasers, combined with further work in improved photochromics, will widen the area of useful applications.
