Optical components for digital optical circuits

Brian S. Wherrett, S. Desmond Smith, F. A P Tooley, Andrew C. Walker

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The present status of all-optical computing for digital logic and information processing is reviewed briefly. Computing architectures that take advantage of the parellelism and interconnect freedom that optics offers are addressed. In particular demonstrator circuits employing optically bistable components are described. © 1988.
