Abstract
This paper describes the design of an optical sequential machine. The architecture consists of two major components: a combinational logic and a set of memory elements. Polarization- coded symbolic substitution is employed to implement the combinational logic. The memory elements are implemented using a combination of liquid crystal light valves and polarizers.
