Abstract

We describe in generic terms a class of associative memory that is based on (1) an oscillating message-bearing optical mode in a resonator containing a multimessage hologram, (2) image-selective (discriminatory) amplification of the desired picture in a photorefractive crystal, and (3) phase-conjugate reflection.
