Abstract

A new neural network architecture for optical computing is proposed. This architecture can be used for implementing a simple system based on a modified theory of the associative memories. It is shown that the memorized patterns can be recalled perfectly by an experimental system using two microchannel spatial light modulators. The modified theory and principle of operation of the optical associatron system are discussed, and the system itself and basic experimental results are also described.
