All-optical interconnects using Airy beams

Abstract : We analyze numerically optical waveguide structures in photorefractive media induced by one or two incoherent counter-propagating (CP) Airy beams. Under nonlinear focusing conditions, we show that for a single Airy beam or for two CP beams with various input positions, multiple waveguiding structures can be photo-induced in the medium. Optical Gaussian beams can therefore be guided with a deflecting trajectory and/or even split into several output beams. These results enable new configurations for all-optical interconnections.
