We present a novel, versatile optoelectronic neural network architecture for implementing supervised learning algorithms in photorefractive materials. The system is based on spatial multiplexing rather than the more commonly used angular multiplexing of the interconnect gratings. This simple, single-crystal architecture implements a variety of multilayer supervised learning algorithms including mean field theory, backpropagation, and Marr-Albus-Kanerva style algorithms. Extensive simulations show how beam depletion, rescattering, absorption, and decay effects of the crystal are compensated for by suitably modified supervised learning algorithms.
