Abstract
The use of optics to realize neural networks is not new. High level simulations of neural networks are common, but detailed optical simulations of the implemented machines are not. The full simulation of such optical-neural networks using advanced software simulation techniques may pave the way for future practical working models. Both physical and logical simulations are provided. The combination of both algorithmic and physical simulations of a neural network provides the opportunity to set up `thought experiments' in a very short time and at low cost. The characteristics of the network would be known at the time of physical implementation. This allows efficient use of scarce laboratory resources.
