Abstract

Nonlinear optics can contribute decisions to optical signal processing and computing. Etalons permit massive parallelism and global interconnectivity. GaAs etalons appear more attractive for real systems, but ZnS interference filters are convenient for simple demonstrations of logic operations, pattern recognition, and symbolic substitution.
