The implementation of what we believe to be the first stored-program digital optical computer is described. The implementation domain consists of lithium niobate directional couplers that are modified to provide optical control and are interconnected with single-mode fiber. The architecture is also the first to employ time-of-flight synchronization. That(More)
Synchronization of signal packets is required in networks in order to route the packets. Due to changes in the interarrival times of the packets the inputs to the routing circuits may exhibit oscillatory metastability. Oscillatory metastability can be eliminated in optical circuits by the addition of logic signal stretch. This can be done because the(More)
