Abstract : This report covers progress for the period 10/1/92 - 12/31/93 on a jointly sponsored ONR/AFOSR grant to Rutgers University which supports research into the architecture and design of digital optical computers. During this reporting period Murdocca developed the notion of a reconfigurable logic/ interconnection component (RELIC) as part of an investigation into the architectural implications of reconfiguration optical interconnects. Prof. Thomas Stone made progress on the study of hybrid micro-macro optics for optical interconnection, achromatic optical interconnects, and the use of birefringent materials for optical interconnection. In addition, our experimental facilities have improved and related work has progressed at the Photonics Center at Rome Laboratory where we have found a good opportunity for technology transfer.
