Abstract

Parallel architectures for cellular automata are adapted to optical computing. Electronic implementations have the interconnection as the limiting factor. Our purpose is to couple the performance of electronics (which offers nonlinear components with large-scale integration and high speed) with the performance of optics (which allows the implementation of dense and rapid interconnections, in particular for the input and output), in a compact optoelectronic cellular automaton setup. The specific case that we selected for the purpose of illustration is the “Lattice-Gas” [1] automaton.
