Optical and electro-optical switches have been extensively studied for applications such as optical computing, opto-digital circuit, and optical communication networks. As complement to the rapidly emerging photonic devices, many optical parallel logic gates have been successfully implemented using current technology. This paper demonstrates three implementations of optical parellel logic using magneto-optic spatial light modulators (MOSLMs), liquid crystal televisions (LCTVs) and microchannel spatial light modulator (MSLM), respectively.
