Paper Abstract

Outer product optical processors can perform high accuracy matrix multiplication using binary representations of input matrices. It has been discovered that the outer product matrix between a binary column vector and a binary row vector is formed naturally in a 2-D matrix-addressed display if the components of the column vector and the row vector are applied in parallel to the row and column electrodes, respectively, of the display. One matrix-addressed display device is the Litton magneto-optic Spatial Light Modulator. The design and operational parameters of an outer product optical processor based on this device will be discussed. Initial experimental results will be presented. This outer product optical processor has the potential for compact, rugged design and high speed operation.
