An all-optical neural network is presented that is based on coupled lasers. Each laser in the network lases at a distinct wavelength, representing one neuron. The network status is determined by the wavelength of the network's light output. Inputs to the network are in the optical power domain. The nonlinear threshold function required for neural-network operation is achieved optically by interaction between the lasers. The behavior of the coupled lasers is explained by a simple laser model… CONTINUE READING
