Optical computing: an introduction
A source on the rapidly changing field of optical computing. Readers are taken through the relevant concepts of classical and Fourier optics, digital logic and digital image processing. In addition to exploration of the basic principles, it applies the characteristics of both all-optical and electro-optic devices/systems to the solution of optical computing. Additional discussions focus on analog optical computing, digital logic and digital optical computing. Exercise problems, up-to-date references and further reading resources complete the book.
