GYAN VIHAR School of Engineering & Technology A Seminar On OPTICAL COMPUTERS Submitted to: - Submitted by: Mr. Naveen Hemrajani Sudhanshu Shekhar Head of the Department B.Tech. IV Year, Computer Science Engineering (VIII Semester)
<ul><li>Optical computing describes a new technological approach for constructing computer’s processors and other components . </li></ul><ul><li>An Optical Computer is a hypothetical device that uses visible light or infrared beams, rather than electric current, to perform digital computations. </li></ul>OPTICAL COMPUTER
Concept of Picosecond BY NASA Computers used to work in millisecond(1,000ths), then moved up to microseconds(millionths),and now are approaching nanoseconds(billionths) for logic operations and PICOSECOND(TRILLIONTHS) for the switches and gates in the chip.
Optical Computing using a coherent source is simple to compute and understand, but it has many drawbacks like any imperfections or dust on the Optical Components will create unwanted interference pattern due to scattering effects. DRAWBACKS
FUTURE TRENDS <ul><li>The Ministry of INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY </li></ul>has initiated a photonic development.
