Abstract

An optical pipelined architecture for a multifunctional binary arithmetic unit is proposed. The approach may eliminate geometrical constraints experienced in conventional implementations, thereby facilitating direct microminiaturization. Issues such as intensity restoration during data flow and fanout are also addressed.
