Photonic Computer. Element Base
The implementation of interference logical elements (LE) is proposed, based on the functioning of which the difference in the intensity values of coherent light waves arising as a result of their interaction with each other and with the waveguides of the logical elements.
The elements form a functionally complete basis.
The requirements for the identity of the intensity values corresponding to the logical constants “0” and “1”, generated by different elements at given fixed time intervals, are fulfilled.
Means for scaling the intensity values of logical constants are proposed. The estimates of the parameters of the elements – speed, power consumption, physical dimensions – are obtained, showing their advantages over electronic counterparts.
Fields of application of interference LEs are digital devices of control systems and computer technology.
