Paper Abstract

Optical computer designs must implicitly or explicitly allow for power budgeting to compensate for crosstalk and loss. This paper develops algorithms for calculating the system crosstalk and power loss in optical systems, using a graph theoretic system model. These algorithms form the basis for an optical systems design methodology in which the designer can develop a system design that employs lumped delays, and that assumes zero device delay, crosstalk and loss, and then employ the algorithms developed in this paper to estimate actual system delay distribution, crosstalk, and power loss.
