We investigate an architectural approach to dynamic three-dimensional volume storage that circulates holograms between two photorefractive crystals. Introduction of an optical amplifier into the system increases the effective write-erase asymmetry of the crystals and permits the amplification of the recalled images. This memory architecture is(More)
Neurotropin (NTP)®, a non-protein extract isolated from the inflamed skin of rabbits inoculated with vaccinia virus, is used clinically for the treatment of neuropathic pain. Moreover, NTP may activate the descending pain inhibitory system. Depression-like behavior is often complicated by chronic pain. However, little is known about NTP-mediated prevention(More)
We investigate an incremental recording technique for multiplexed hologram storage in photorefractive crystals, in which each hologram is recorded with multiple short exposures. The performance is theoretically compared with that of scheduled (single exposure per hologram) recording. Our analysis shows that this technique systematically controls the signal(More)
Neural network modules based on page-oriented dynamic digital photorefractive memory are described. The modules can implement two different interconnection organizations, fan-out and fan-in, depending on their target network applications. Neural network learning is realized by the real-time memory update of dynamic digital photorefractive memory. Physical(More)
We report polarization independent Bragg grating wavelength filter using polarization rotation. A non-vertical waveguide sidewall and antisymmetric grating structure can be used to generate the polarization rotation of the fundamental modes. The diffraction efficiencies and peaks becomes the same for two orthogonal input polarizations. The concept was(More)
The detailed design process and experimental results of stacked multilayer diffractive optical elements are reported for an optical network unit used in optical subscriber-network applications. The optical network unit accepts two incoming light beams of 1.3- and 1.55-microm wavelengths through a single-mode optical fiber. A laser diode is also placed for(More)
Silicon wire waveguide TE0/TE1 mode conversion Bragg grating can be used in wavelength add/drop and polarization rotation Bragg diffraction. The device can implement many filtering functionalities required in wavelength division multiplexing optical communications. In this paper we describe TE0/TE1 mode conversion Bragg grating device incorporating resonant(More)
We have developed a periodically poled LiNbO<sub>3</sub> (PPLN) ridge waveguide device and experimentally demonstrated a phase-sensitive optical parametric amplification. The highly efficient net phase-sensitive parametric gain of +18.6  dB is obtained in a cascaded second harmonic generation and difference frequency generation configuration. The(More)
Recent studies have demonstrated that magnetic stimulation (MS) can induce cellular responses such as Ca2+ influx into the cultured neurons and glia, leading to increased intracellular phosphorylation. We have demonstrated previously that MS reduces rat neuropathic pain associated with the prevention of neuronal degeneration. Thus, we aimed to elucidate the(More)
