photonic computer

A type of computer in which the electronic circuits, which process data serially, are replaced by photonic circuits capable of parallel processing and thus of much greater speed and power. Where the standard electronic circuitry of a conventional computer utilizes electrons, the photonic computer uses photons for computation. These photons are generated by diodes, and/or lasers.
