Paper Abstract

The design of an optical computer must be based on the characteristics of optics and optical technology, and not on those of electronic technology. The property of optical superposition is considered and the implications it has in the design of computing systems is discussed. It can be exploited in the implementation of optical gates, interconnections, and shared memory.
