Abstract : This report summarizes the progress, accomplishments, and status of our effort on the study of optical methods for parallel access optical memory. The main objectives of this project are to develop important optical amplification techniques to increase optical energy efficiency and novel optical interconnection and/or processing techniques to increase the versatility of new parallel access optical memory concepts. The goal is to relieve the electronic cache bottleneck and help realize high net data transfer rates.
