Abstract

An integration architecture for optical computing can be based on the topology of an idealized nonlinear interface. Solid state multiplexing is possible with thin film multilayer stacks resulting in polarizers and phase retarders matched to the interface. Recent progress in controlling switching behavior at a nonlinear interface and the simple integration technique may warrant increased interest in this approach to optical computing.
