We have studied PRCM as a basic device that could achieve a free-space optical communication with the spatial parallelism using mainly photorefractive crystal and four-wave mixing technique. The asynchronous PRCM, which is newly introduced in this paper, has the diffraction grating generated by two control beams independent of the signal beam. Thus, the signal is transmitted at the velocity of light and can be branched with no delay from the multiple nodes connected on the transmission bus line. We also propose a new two-way communication device, to which double phase conjugator technology was applied, as opposed to the one-directional device of optical signals from the transmitting side to the reception side. We conduct a basic evaluation on the branching and transmission characteristics of signals at the spatial optical switch element.
