Abstract

The optical disk is a computer storage medium with very large capacity. For example a 12 cm. diameter optical disk can store more than 1010 bits of information. Because of the two dimensional format of optical disks, they are ideal for storing images and holograms. In this study the authors examine a closed-loop optical associative memory based on the optical disk.
