Abstract
The development of the digital electronic computer was highly successful and its capabilities are still improving at a brisk rate. Are there any chances for digital optical computing? Indeed, there exist reasons to believe that an optical system can compete with electronic computing in some situations. We will analyze in the following first the basic aspects of optical computing and we will then describe as a laboratory example an optical, logical, parallel processor based on diffraction or scattering effects.
