Paper Abstract

The optical analog computer offers the user a very high-speed one-dimensional or two-dimensional system for conducting spectrum analysis, matched filtering, or correlation detection. This type of computer offers a significant advantage in hardware performance (equivalent bits per second per dollar) over the digital computer in certain important signal-processing areas.
