Abstract : This report covers progress for the period 5/1/92 - 7/31/92 on a jointly sponsored ONR/AFOSR grant to Rutgers University which supports research into the architecture and design of digital optical computers. Progress for this reporting period includes technology transfer of the CAD tools to a Rome Laboratory sponsored SBIR effort and technology transfer of the CAD tools to the in-house Photonics Center optical computing program at Rome Laboratory. Stone continued his progress on micro/macro optics for optical interconnection, and has completed a paper summarizing his work that is being submitted to Applied Optics. Gupta has made progress on exploring a method for interconnecting parallel processors in which a high bandwidth optical interconnect slowly reconfigures, while a number of small electronic interconnects reconfigure more quickly.
