Paper Abstract

Tuneable all-optical signal processing has been the holy grail of information photonics; it has been pursued for many years but has proven to be very challenging. In this contribution, we present our recent work in developing an all-optical signal processing device called a photonic reservoir computer (PhRC) which can be tuned to perform a bespoke task. The PhRC is inspired by how the brain handles and process information. We demonstrate that a chaotic micro-resonator is a suitable platform for the optical implementation of such an artificial neural network.
