Devices for Optical Signal Processing

The use of optics to perform signal processing operations has long held an attraction because speed-of-light considerations and the availability of many parallel channels in two-dimensional optical fields promised very high throughput. Many concepts for optical processing have been proposed, yet very few has ever progressed beyond demonstration stages into widespread usage. For many concepts the technology was not available for an effective implementation.
