Paper Abstract

An all-optical processor for sensor inputs capable of computing the resultant strain and optical control signals for such applications as underwater fiber-optic sensor arrays and smart aerospace structures is presented. Attention is given to computer simulation and experimental results obtained to date, which indicate that neural network architectures can perform the very high speed calculations with the requisite accuracy. The performance thus far obtainable in the available bistable optical gate arrays is the basic performance limitation identified for this all-optical implementation.
