Paper Abstract

Optical techniques for extracting, processing, and displaying information from recorded images have significant advantages over serial digital computers for a wide variety of applications. Of particular importance is the ability of optical systems to perform complex Fourier transform operations on large two-dimensional data arrays or images, in parallel. Widespread use of these techniques, however, hinges on the development of components for systems that utilize this parallel processing potential for high speed operation.
