Abstract

The spatial routing of a temporally encoded stream of optical pulses is experimentally demonstrated. The holograms that link the temporally shaped addresses to the deflection directions are engraved in a photorefractive crystal.

Fig. 1
Fig. 1

Diagram of the experimental setup: Two holograms are sequentially recorded. Then beams k ^ 2 ( 1 ) and k ^ 2 ( 2 ) are blocked and the diffracted signals are simultaneously detected on photodiodes D1 and D2 through the beam splitter (B.S.).

Fig. 2
Fig. 2

Spectral slits used to encode the address beams. One obtains the corresponding temporal developments by Fourier transform of the spectral shapes. The code 1 center is set to coincide with that of the laser spectrum.

Fig. 3
Fig. 3

Experimental data: A spectrally encoded pulse stream is directed to the programmed optical processor along k ^ 1. Diffracted energy is simultaneously detected in directions k ^ 2 ( 1 ) and k ^ 2 ( 2 ) as a function of the spectral position of the shaping mask. The position scan is equivalent to the scan of the relative phase of two successive peaks within the temporal profile of the input pulse. The detector zero level is represented by 0 on the vertical axis.
