Abstract : Fundamental optical nonlinear processes based on x(2) and x(3) in different materials (liquids, polymers, and semiconductors) were investigated for size and speed. Ultrafast optical logic devices, switches, and processes based on these nonlinear optical materials were designed, built, and tested. Twenty one papers were published during this work in the period 1986-1987. Keywords include: Ultrafast technology, Optical computation, Phase conjugation, and Nonlinear optics.
