For solving the problem of speed increasing
of computers with good prospects are optical devices capable of executing the
whole spectra of mathematical operations: differentiation, integration, work
with complex functions etc., but they, as a rule, represent some class of the
peripheral devices. Their lack is that in the majority they are analog, that
is: low accuracy of calculations, difficulty of programming, unproved logic and
arithmetic operations with numbers. The existing computing devices functions of
logic gates realize and are constructed on the classical architectural
decisions. They are not only bulky, but also the presence of electrical and
electronic components considerably reduces speed of calculation of logic
functions. In many decisions the opportunity of complex functions calculation
on the basis of a base element is impossible. The whole class of the patented
integrated optical logic devices carrying out calculation of logic operations
by an exclusively optical way is developed and offered by the authors. That
gives a large speed of calculations, integrated realizability and safety in
operation. All described devices can represent to the full components of the
optical processor without using electrical feeding.
