Abstract

A switching technique using the polarization sensitivity of photorefractive holograms in crystals is experimentally demonstrated. The design is capable of handling a large number of 2 × 2 switching channels with only four holograms. The concept is applicable to either synchronous or asynchronous switching and also to a variety of photorefractive materials.
