Paper Abstract

The advances in the design and fabrication of optoelectronic components such as microlaser arrays, photodetectors and free-space optical interconnection elements have driven the creation of ever more ambitious demonstrator systems. In this paper, the progress made to date on two separate demonstrator project, which have been under investigation at Heriot-Watt University, will be reviewed. A description of some of the enabling technologies used in the creation of these systems will be provided and the potential for scaling the architectures described up to sizes where the computational advantages of the optics-in-computing paradigm become highly attractive will be outlined.
