A method of implementing optical logic has been realized experimentally with a novel liquid crystal on silicon spatial light modulator with an integrated lens arrays. The device allows for three optical inputs and one optical output per pixel. The different logic functions realized, OR, AND, NOR, NAND, and XOR, are discussed.
