Paper Abstract

A novel optical arithmetic element, based on combinatorial logic, is described. A combined use of residue arithmetic and truthtable optimization techniques is shown to yield a highly efficient design. A unique array-processing architecture is shown which computes most of the common primitive linear-algebra processes without iteration. Several possible all-optical far-term implementations of the arithmetic element are discussed.
