An Optical Circuitry Cooperative (OCC) has been formed as an NSF cooperative research center in which six or more companies contribute financial support; NSF provides support which declines to zero in five years. Companies benefit from a center by early access to research results, leverage for their research dollars, participation in research selection, and improved relations with faculty and students. The university receives support for a major research program that increases its research capability, provides reasonably stable funding, and opens more opportunities for graduate students. The areas encompassed by OCC include all-optical logic, picosecond decision-making, guided-wave preprocessors, optical interconnects within computers (both fiber and whole-array imaging), optical storage, and optical computer architecture and devices.
