Paper Abstract

OptiComp Corporation is developing a general purpose digital optical computer which makes use of commercially available component technology. This computer has been named DOC II. In this manuscript, we briefly discuss some of the issues relating to the optical system of DOC II. We discuss the optical design of the various subsystems, the opto-mechanical design, and the simple system evaluation tests that were performed. As part of this discussion, we reveal some of the driving specifications, tolerance issues, and show actual test data for some of the optical subsystems.
