Abstract

We report the demonstration and characterization of a 2 × 8 optical reconfigurable interconnect with laser diodes at 780 nm and a ferroelectric liquid crystal spatial light modulator in conjunction with a photorefractive barium titanate crystal. The photorefractive holograms improve the energy efficiency by 6 to 10 dB over the conventional approach.
