Paper Abstract

We present a technique to implement the Boolean logic gates in polarization architecture using a dual beam arrangement. The method is based on the intensity beam modulation of linearly polarized laser light, through an array of polarizers placed in each beam path. These arrays are the inputs to the logical operations, which are achieved by the rotation of the incident light polarization direction. The output is represented by the superposition of shadowgrams resulting when both beams are brought together on a screen.
