Abstract

We propose a matrix–matrix multiplication by using anisotropic self-diffraction in BaTiO3. The input matrices are carried by the two incident beams with special Bragg-matched incident angles. The output matrices are produced by anisotropic self-diffraction with the polarization orthogonal to those of the incident matrices. By thresholding the output this architecture is particularly suitable for the applications of optical interconnects and an optical switch.
