Abstract
This paper gives a brief overview of neural networks noting the advantages of the optical implementation. The Hopfield model mainly used as an associative memory is introduced. Planar holograms have been used to defme the interconnections between neurons in optical systems but volume holograms with photorefractive crystals offer much greater potential and density for these interconnections1. Because of the lack of suitable optical material light modulators have been used to simulate neurons in the neural plane. A simple one-layer network using photorefractive material will be presented along with some preliminary results.
