abstract

Features of light are compared with those of electrons and other possible information carriers from a view point of computing and information processing, especially when they are used in future brain-type systems. It is described that the use of wave aspects of light leads to a realization of ultimately parallel and adaptive information processing systems. Two architecture examples utilizing such lightwave features are presented and discussed: (1) coherent optical neural networks and (2) coherent high-frequency clock delivery.
