Abstract

The first digital all-optical circuits based on intrinsic bistable devices have now been realized. Experimental results with two systems, InSb etalons and nonlinear interference filters containing ZnSe, are presented and discussed. These results indicate that a digital optical processor incorporating devices of this type would appear to be feasible.
