Abstract
A NEW CLASS OF OPTICAL SOLID STATE MATERIALS HAVE BEEN DEVELOPED. THE NEW MATERIALS DISPLAY LARGE ELECTRON TRAPPING (ET) AND ARE VERY EFFICIENT. THEY COULD BE USED FOR OPTICAL READ/WRITE/ERASE MEMORIES AND FOR OPTICAL COMPUTATIONS. FOR OPTICAL PROCESSING THE TRAPS IN THE ET MATERIALFS CAN BE FILLED AT THE EXPENSE OF AN INDEPENDENT "POWER SUPPLY" LIGHT SOURCE. THE PHASE I WORK WILL CHARACTERIZE THE BASIC BEHAVIOR OF THESE UNIQUE MATERIALS AND WILL DEMONSTRATE SOME FUNDAMENTAL PHOTONIC FUNCTIONS; SUCH AS MEMORY AND SWITCHING.
