An optoelectronic hybrid optical array logic system is experimentally constructed as an instance of the optical parallel array logic system (OPALS). In the experimental system, a coherent 2-D correlator with holographic filters and image encoder/decoder based on fully parallel electronic circuits are applied. Holographic filters for several kinds of simple processing are optically fabricated and correct operation of the system is verified. In the experimental system, 3 by 3 pixels are processed in parallel at the rate of about 278 operations per second. Sixteen logical functions and iterative operations are demonsirated.
