Paper Abstract

The various optical interconnection schemes that have been developed for the implementation of neural network architectures are reviewed. Volume holography in photorefra.ct.ive crystals is the most powerful interconnection method for this application. The use of liquid crystal smart pixel technology for the realization of the nonlinear activation function of the neurons is described. A novel method for combining liquid crystal devices and photorefractive holograms that leads to a very compact and versatile package, is presented.
