Paper Abstract

A unique architecture has been developed for a compact programmable optoelectronic logic array. The system is comprised of two arrays of symmetric self electro-optic effect devices (S- SEED) and a 3 dimensional integrated guided-wave crossbar interconnection network. Presently emerging technologies would allow densities of a few hundred thousand S-SEEDs, connected in a wide sense nonblocking manner, per cubic inch. Such arbitrary connectivity, in effect a `virtual 3-D hologram,' would allow execution of complex logic functions.
