Paper Abstract

Laser Diodes are becoming increasingly attractive for application to time integrating and systolic optical computing architectures where large bandwidths and coherent processing are required. This paper reports the results of a study to determine the interferometric performance of laser diodes when used in a pulsed mode and where the interference effects of many sequential pulses are integrated temporally. The results indicate qat fringe visibility is high for as many as 104 integraged pulses if the OPD in the processor is less than 5 mm and the laser pulse width is less than 50 nsec.
