Decoding digital information using optical components was proposed. The method was based on the iterative coding schemes, such as turbo codes and low-density parity-check (LDPC)codes. An increase in the speed at least two orders of magnitude could be acheived compared to the conventional electronic decoding by this proposed architecture.
