Paper Abstract

We propose an application specific optoelectronic parallel computing architecture as a solution of the optical computing system to demonstrate the usefulness of optics in information processing system of near future. Solving optimization problems based on the genetic algorithm is studied as a target of the proposed architecture. The composition of the proposed architecture is described. Validity of the operation of the proposed architecture is verified by computer simulation. Processing performance of the system based on the architecture is analyzed and its advantageous conditions comparing with the electronic multiprocessor system are clarified. An optical image broadcaster is constructed to demonstrate the capability of optics in the system and the experimental results are presented.
