Abstract

An optical polynomial processor is investigated to evaluate a general class of nonlinear functions. The polynomial processor is based on a cascaded holographic array that is reconstructed by an off-Bragg laser beam. By means of cascaded off-Bragg reconstructions, a series of polynomial terms can be obtained in parallel at light-transmitted speed.
