2 February 1993 Optical neural networks using a new radial nonlinear neural layer

Radially nonlinear neurons are introduced, and back propagation learning for multilayer networks of these simple hidden units is derived and simulated. The nonlinear transformation performed by a hidden layer of radial units can be represented as a simple multiplication of the summed net input to each neuron by a single value which is only dependent on the total input to the hidden layer. This allows a simple optical implementation, in which a single modulator/detector is able to act as an entire hidden layer by multiplexing the neuron net inputs and processed outputs.
