Abstract

With the reconfiguration technique, users can configure the optical processor of a new optical computing platform, the ternary optical computer (TOC), into 42 specific basic operation units, and reconfigure it when the computation is completed. A simulative method of software for this technique is proposed in this paper. Also, an elaborate experiment based on this software is discussed. This simulation of reconfiguration demonstrates that the theory of reconfiguring optical processor in TOC is valid and also lays the foundation for the hardware implementation of the reconfiguration technique.
