Abstract : The hybrid optical/electronic processing research at UCSD involves several approaches: (i) Applying digital statistical pattern recognition theory to optical system via the use of computer generated holograms for optical statistical pattern recognition. (ii) Incorporting image amplifier into an optical feedback system for solving partial differential equations and performing matrix inversion. (iii) Producing nonlinear optical devices using silicon and PLZT for nonlinear image processing. (iv) Demonstrating the feasibility of hybrid computing using integrated optical and integrated electronic circuits.
