Abstract
The report "Optical Computer: A Future Technology" was written in order to present a general overview of the current state of this emerging technology as well to identify certain particular areas of research which appear to be of pivotal importance to continued progress in optical computing technology in general. Although the report discusses several areas of current interest, the focus is on the development of general purpose, digital, all-optical computing technology based upon nonlinear optical phenomena in different media, particularly semiconductors, and to some of the attendant questions involving, e.g., architectural design and connectivity.
