Abstract:

WE PROPOSE TO DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF DEVELOPING EXTREMELY FAST COMPUTER SWITCHING COMPONENTS BASED ON A METHOD OF USING LIGHT TO MODULATE ATOMIC TRANSITIONS. THE TECHNIQUE OF USING LIGHT TO MODULATE ATOMIC TRANSITIONS IS NOT NEW. LASERS OPERATE BY OPTICALLY STIMULATING A PREPARED SYSTEM TO UNDERGO ATOMIC TRANSITIONS. THE UNDERLYING PRINCIPLES OF ATOMIC PHYSICS HAVE BEEN UNDERSTOOD SINCE THE 1930S. WE PROPOSE TO INVESTIGATE THE POSSIBILITY OF APPLYING THESE PRINCIPLES IN THE FIELD OF COMPUTER ARCHITECTURE. ATTACHMENT ONE ENTITLED "A METHOD OF REPRESENTING BINARY INFORMATION BY MEANS OF STORING LIGHT" DESCRIBES A WAY OF IMPLEMENTING BIT STORAGE AND RETRIEVAL. AS PART OF THE INVESTIGATION WE WILL DEVELOP COMMPUTER SOFTWARE TO SIMULATE THE PHYSICAL PROCESSES DESCRIBED IN ATTACHMENT ONE.
