SUMMARY We approach nanophotonic computing on the basis of optical near-field interactions between quantum dots. A table lookup, or matrix-vector multiplication, architecture is proposed. As fundamental functionality, a data summation mechanism and digital-to-analog conversion are experimentally demonstrated using CuCl quantum dots. Owing to the… (More)
We propose and demonstrate a memory-based computation architecture combining data summation and broadcast mechanisms using optical near-field interactions between quantum dots, which will allow high-density integration beyond the diffraction-limit of light.
