We propose and demonstrate the use of a Fourier transform to achieve maximum energy efficiency in a photorefractive optical interconnection. The results of experimental investigations on reconfigurable optical interconnections using photorefractive holograms in a barium titanate crystal are presented and discussed. High energy efficiency is achieved by matched amplification at the Fourier plane.
