Paper Abstract

In this paper we propose new methods of optically implementing digital logic gates capable of performing all combinatorial logic operations. These logic gates are implemented on a Hughes liquid crystal light valve operated in the parallel off-state. Several configurations for realization of optical gates such as AND, NOR, XOR, etc. will be considered. Experimental results will be given using the portions of a single liquid crystal light valve.
