Abstract

The status of bulk-GaAs etalons and their application to high-speed optical logic is summarized. A nonlinear etalon is described that can make a decision in about 1 ps and recover to make another in less than 100 ps, making possible high-speed optical logic. These recovery times are considered to be adequate for parallel computations where thermal considerations will limit the product of pixel density and repetition rate.
