Paper Abstract

This paper describes the system considerations in implementing a bit serial optical computer using lithium niobate directional couplers and optical fiber. I discuss the three main problems in constructing such a computer: computation of fiber lengths, estimation of and compensation for power losses, and details of the physical construction of the machine.
