Research in the area of optical information processing is marked by significant developments over the years. Advances in processing systems and algorithms have enabled researchers to realize operations under practical field conditions and in real-time. Optical processors are finding applications in the areas where digital and microelectronics growth technologies demonstrate limitations. Liquid crystal based spatial light, modulators and recently developed smart pixel technology have shown high potential for optical processing systems. Pattern recognition is one of the widely pursued application areas under information processing. It is computationally demanding. Optical correlation techniques find applications in biometrics and security verifications, medical diagnosis, quality assessment, and navigation etc.

Present article contains a qualitative review of the literature and a comprehensive listing of research articles published in the year 1997 in the area of optical information processing. The article chiefly concentrates on optical pattern recognition (OPR) and incorporates multiple facets and approaches followed by different researchers over the year. Special emphasis has been given to improvised systems, correlator architectures, correlation filter, distortion invariant PR systems, optimum processors etc. Computing paradigms discussed in the present article chiefly fall into analog, digital, and analog-digital hybrid optical processing systems. There are separate sections on upcoming high potential techniques such as neural networks, fractional Fourier transform, and optical interconnects. We do not claim the listing of the articles to be complete and would welcome any suggestion as to the addition of the missing references.
