Abstract : Fundamental principles associated with a new non-linear optical approach to constructing ultra-high speed, high density, optical memories have been studied in a four-year ARO research contract. Basic feasibility of the approach has been established. Non-linear optical approaches to optical processing, phase-conjugation, and pulse compression were also investigated. Keywords: Gas phase memory, Coherent transient effects, Frequency swept, Optical pulses, Solid state storage.
