Paper Abstract

A novel method for multiplier modulo using optical signal processing is presented. Multiplier modulo is an important process in a factorization algorithm. In the method, modulo operations are executed by phase modulation. We construct a prototype system of the presented method. The constructed system consists of a Michelson interferometer with a photo detector array. In the system, mirrors are put on both object and reference arms. A mirror in the object arm is slightly tilted and the angle depends on parameters for target multiplier modulo. An obtained interference fringe has information about desired results for modulo operations. The most feature of the presented system is that it achieves massive data processing for mulitiplier modulo in parallel with only simple implementation. We show experimental results to verify usefulness of the presented method. Moreover, we study on expansion to implement factorization.
