Paper Abstract

A compact optical coprocessor dedicated to the edge extraction on binary images is presented. Four cellular automata using optical interconnections implementing an OR logical function and optical photothyristors acting as inverting and noninverting optical gates are proposed. This machine could reasonably process 1024 X 1024 images with present technologies.
