Paper Abstract

An experimental system of a ternary logic optical computer, including its working principle, architecture and main components, is proposed. The main object of this paper is to give readers a holistic understanding of the ternary optical computer. This experimental system, which fully exploits the parallelism of optics, can have huge data bus width that is difficult for the general electronic computer to realize. The completeness of this system not only proves the feasibility of the ternary optical computer principle and the decrease-radix design theory, but also sets down a solid foundation for the research of the practicable hundreds-trit ternary optical computer.
