The research performed under the contracts has spanned the fields of image formation, optical information processing, and holography. Major emphasis during the past year has been on the development of new methods for extremely fast, fully parallel, incoherent optical data processing systems. While most coherent optical data processors require information to be input onto a real-time electronic or electrooptic transparency in a serial or time-sequential fashion, incoherent processors offer the possibility of fully parallel data input at enormous speeds.
