Paper Abstract

Neural networks are highly interconnected systems of simple analog processing elements which are intrinsically highly parallel in nature and exhibit abilities such as leatniny and generalization. bince optical systems are inherently highly paialiel, in that spatially modulated wavefronts can contain large amount of information and nonlinear materials such as photorefractive crystals can be used to pertoLm processing functions on these wavefronts, optical implementations of neural network architectures are a natural development. We refer to optical implementations of neural network systems as "Optical Neuromorphs."
