In this paper we present a design for an optical system which performs Closest Vector Selection (CVS) and which could be competitive with present electronic approaches. The application of closest vector selection has been an important one in communications. The incorporation of closest vector selection into neural nets, which have the capability of learning, yields a very powerful tool. The optical implementation has a potential capability better than that obtainable with electronic computers. In this paper, first the background will be presented and then the device itself will be described.
