Abstract
Optical computing systems offer potentially three advantages over electronic computing systems: speed, parallelism and highly interconnected architectures. Optics is well suited for performing interconnections because photons pass through one another without interacting. Therefore the density of interconnections in optical implementations can be quite high compared to those achieved in electronics (1). This is particularly exciting for neuromorphic computers, whose architectures require a large number of interconnections between processors, and for building programmable optical crossbars for high speed communications.
