Abstract

We present the nonlinear interface optical switch in the context of digital optical computing applications. Implications with regard to materials design and development and switch evaluation are discussed. A specific class of materials synthesized using laser chemistry of organometallics is presented. Embodiments of this type of switch have considerable potential for meeting many of the required design criteria for practical implementation of digital optical computing devices.
