Abstract

Photorefractive materials comprise an important category of electrooptic materials, and are important constituent elements in a wide range of devices designed specifically for use in optical information processing and computing systems. Critical issues affecting the development and applicability of photorefractive materials are examined from the perspective of photonic neural network implementations that incorporate photorefractive volume holographic interconnections.
