Abstract

The applicability of lasers to the logic, memory, input-output, and data transmission linkages portions of computers are analyzed qualitatively. The more promising potential applications are considered to lie in the memory, interconnection, and input-output areas, and the least promising in the fast logic area. Coherent optical data preprocessing is cited as an example of an already clearly useful laser application.
