Paper Abstract

In this paper we discuss the application of liquid crystals to binary optical computing. In particular we are interested in using liquid crystals to form optical logic gates and flip-flops, the basis of binary computing. A fair amount of work has been done using liquid crystals incorporated in optical spatial light modulators. These will be reviewed and discussed and simple optical circuits using them will be described.
