Abstract:

The purpose of this Phase I SBIR contract was to invent ways of using switchable holograms to change from one optical interconnect pattern to another with great speed. That is, we sought to combine the high flexibility in design and high diffraction efficiency of classical holography with the programmability of the far-less-efficient real time holography methods of four wave mixing, three wave mixing, etc. We have solved this problem in many separate and wholly satisfactory ways. A Phase II proposal to develop the best of these solutions is being submitted along with this report. The report organization is historical. That is, it follows the path of our thought as it evolved toward the ultimate solution. This historical matter is important in that it sets the stage for recognizing the superiority our final decision over earlier versions.
