Paper Abstract

The PRIMO optical processor is an analog outer product processor based on 1-D arrays of electrooptic modulators. PRIMO is capable of performing matrix-matrix multiplication, convolution, correlation, and other linear computational algorithms. In this paper we discuss techniques for representing bipolar and complex data in PRIMO using square law detectors. It is shown that by utilizing a bias and properly sequencing the data the square law detection nonlinearity can be fully compensated.
