Paper Abstract

The use of optical phase conjugation (OPC) process for parallel digital and symbolic optical computing is described. Using spatially encoded logic and sym-bolic variables, various OPC-based parallel ultrafast optical logic, symbolic as well as interconnect processors are detailed. The proposed devices are experimen-tally verified using picosecond pulses from a mode-locked Nd3+:YAG laser. Based on these processors, an OPC-based ultrafast optical computing architecture is proposed.
