1 September 1990 Optical correlators: optical computing that really works
Author Affiliations +
In the past 15 years, a dozen or so designs have been proposed for optical computers. Of these, maybe one-third of them have actually been built and only a few of those tested. This paper will give an overview of some of the systems that have been built as well as mention some promising early and current designs that have not been built. Emphasis will be given to application oriented designs that have been built and tested. This means, of course, that the bulk of the paper is devoted to optical correlators.
