Abstract : Investigations of techniques for describing and enhancing the accuracy of optical linear algebra processors have been conducted. Significant accomplishments include: (1) development and simulation of a system model incorporating device dynamic range for better quantitative assessment of error- correction code performance; (2) extension of earlier statistical models to include crosstalk, background, avalanche gain, flicker and generation- recombination noise effects; (3) construction of the Optical Analysis Simulation Interactive System (OASIS) software for the acquisition, analysis and manipulation of experimental data and (4) identification of major noise sources of experimental concern using OASIS.
