Paper Abstract

We discuss the implementation of an optoelectronic programmable logic array using arrays of optical thyristors and Fourier plane diffractive optical elements. The effects of the spectral line-width of the optical thyristors on dispersive inter-element cross-talk are modelled and found to be tolerable. An experimental demonstration of an optical interconnection with diffractive fan-out for optical thyristor arrays is presented.
