Silicon-based smart spatial light modulators: Technology and applications to parallel computers

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Silicon-based Smart Spatial Light Modulators (S-SLMs) are reviewed for their potential role in parallel computing. S-SLMs optimally combine the local computation capabilities of electronics with the global interconnection capabilities of optics. They are a critical component well suited for the realization of fine-grain massively parallel computers. A. theoretical framework describing their expected performance in terms of scalability, reli-ability, throughput and packaging issues is presented and several enabling technologies under development are discussed.
