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) [2013-01]

  • 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.
