Abstract : Research was conducted in a number of areas relating to optical computing algorithms and architectures. This research has centered on extending earlier Georgia Tech results on optical holographic content-addressable memories to the direct implementation of truth tables to perform fast, parallel data processing. The use of optics in computing systems provides important advantages of parallelism and interconnectivity that may be directly applied to massively parallel processing applications such as automatic target recognition and tracking
