Abstract

Optical implementations of binary multiple-variable symmetric logic functions are proposed. By using a triangular array of lossless beam splitters together with optical on–off switches, an optical binary symmetric logic module (OBSLM) is experimentally implemented. The applications of the OBSLM to optical digital, symbolic, and neural computing are discussed.
