Optical Unitary Matrix Multiplication Device Based on MZI Network

Application ID: 109261

Optical computing has been a promising paradigm alternative to the current electronic computers. This model simulates an optical 4-by-4 unitary matrix multiplication device based on a network of six Mach–Zehnder interferometers (MZIs).

A more detailed description of this model can be found in our blog post "Analyzing an Optical Computation Device with Simulation".

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
