An optical learning network using photorefractive holograms with grating amplitude detection is presented and demonstrated. The Stoke's principle for light is used to realize both bipolar weight changes and bipolar activities for perceptron learning. The bipolar detection is achieved by using a double Mach-Zehnder interferometer and an electronic subtractor at the output port. Experimental results show that a zero or near to zero threshold value, the network can be trained to dichotomize the input patterns.
