Reconfigurable Photonic Logic Architecture: An Overview

Abstract : The photosensor studied in this document, is an amorphous silicon structure deposited on transparent glass allowing illumination on both sides. It responds to wavelengths from near infrared range to the ultra-violet. The front illumination surface is used for inputting light signal. The dynamic characteristics of the photosensor are altered by using optical bias on either surface of the sensor, thus the same input results in different outputs. Experimental studies made with the photosensor evaluate its applicability as a multiplexer, demultiplexer and logical operations device. A memory effect was observed. A programmable pattern emission system, and a validation and recovery system were built to illuminate the sensor with input light signals and to analyze the resulting output.
