Abstract

The optical implementation of parallel logic gates using inexpensive liquid-crystal televisions (LCTV's) is demonstrated, and basic experimental results are presented. While it is certainly unreasonable to expect general-purpose optical computers to be built from LCTV's, demonstration-level systems can be built, from which a great deal may be learned.
