Abstract
This paper gives a brief historical review of the development of optical computing from the early years, 60 years ago, until today. All the major inventions in the field were made in the sixties, generating a lot of enthusiasm. However it is between 1980 and 2000, that optical computing had its golden age with numerous new technologies and innovating optical processors been designed and constructed for real applications. Today the field of optical computing has evolved and its results benefit to new research topics such as nanooptics, biophotonics, or communication systems.
