Paper Abstract

Devices for optical processing and computing systems are discussed with emphasis on the materials requirements imposed by functional constraints. Generalized optical processing and computing systems are described in order to identify principal categories of requisite components for complete system implementation. Three principal device categories are selected for analysis in some detail: spatial light modulators, volume holographic optical elements, and bistable optical devices. The implications for optical processing and computing systems of the identified materials requirements for these device categories are described, and directions for future research are proposed.
