Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

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.
