OPTICAL COMPUTING DEVICES;
{
COMPUTING DEVICES USING OTHER RADIATIONS WITH SIMILAR PROPERTIES
}
(optical logic elements per se G02F 3/00; digital storage using optical elements G11C 13/04)
NOTE
-
This subclass covers all devices in which at least one computing function is performed by optical means.

If other aspects, for example mechanical, fluid pressure or electrical computing, are of interest, classification is also made in the relevant subclass for such aspects.
