Paper Abstract

The characteristics of electron trapping optical material are reviewed and equations for modeling the behavior developed. Classical supervised and unsupervised learning algorithms, suitable for optical implementation, are discussed. The principles, optical set up, experimental laboratory results and limitations are described for three optical learning demonstration systems: a supervised Hebbian optical learning associative memory, a supervised Perceptron classifier, and an unsupervised Hebbian optical learning novelty detector. Results show the potential and limitations of electron trapping optical material for optical neural network systems that use optical learning.
