Abstract

Spectral phase codes are used as storage addresses in a frequency-selective optical memory. Data are engraved over a 1.5-THz-wide spectral interval. With the help of a ferroelectric liquid-crystal modulator it takes less than 100 μs to retrieve any spectrally addressed data.

Storage at a single address. (a) The shape E1(ν), the envelope of the spectral hologram. The storage domain spreads over an Nνs-wide interval around the central frequency ν0. Component 16 of the 32-element Hadamard family is the step function. (b) The experimental cross-correlation signal amplitude, as it is measured with the help of the 32 address codes numbered from 0 to 31.
