Abstract
An attempt is made to use the phenomenon of three-order light diffraction with direct transitions between all the optical modes in uniaxial single crystals for the implementation of all-optical logic-based devices. The exact and closed analytical model for describing this strongly nonlinear phenomenon is exploited to consider the feasibility of applying such an effect to perform all-optical switching. An opportunity for designing two versions of the key components for all-optical J-K flip-flops and the possibility of arranging a 3-bit digital register are revealed and algorithmically estimated.
