Abstract
The potential development of digital optical computing systems is discussed. Previous approaches are reviewed and their shortcomings with respect to digital electronic circuitry are analyzed. Fundamental arguments are presented which indicate the potential advantages of optical logic over electronic logic. A generic classification of digital optical computing is presented.
