This report covers progress for the period 11191 - 13192 on a jointly sponsored AFOSRONR grant to Rutgers University that supports research in architecture and design of digital optical computers. Progress for this reporting period includes the ongoing development of an interactive design tool for digital optical circuits, and the development of optical interconnection methods that affect the design process. Prior to this report, an emphasis has been placed on the Bell Labs style of digital optical processor, in which arrays of optical logic gates are interconnected in free space with regular patterns at the gate level. The computer-aided design CAD tools and the optical interconnection methods that we have been developing under AFOSRONR support have evolved to the extent that we are now characterizing tradeoffs between the complexity of the optical interconnects and the complexity of the computer architecture.
