Paper Abstract

A potential problem encountered in the implementation of symbolic substitution logic (SSL) is addressed in this paper. It is shown that in the case of intensity-coded data, the pattern recognizer in the architecture for the optical symbolic substitution processor does not recognize the presence of an overlapping pattern of interest. On the other hand, the architecture identifies the overlapping pattern in the case of polarization-coded SSL. However, the recognition of the overlapping search patterns can cause problem in certain applications when we try to make use of the parallelism in the spatial dimension. The above cases are illustrated by suitable examples.
