Later, data is sent through the fibre optic cables depending on its final location. The holographic memory receives some information, where it will then be saved. Saved information is accessed by the program that requires it by sending a command to the central processing unit. As soon as the information is received by the program, information is again sent to the processor to notify that the task was successfully received (Athale & Psaltis, 2016, p.32). In addition, optic computers performance will entail: an optical processor, optical data transfer, for instance, a fibre optic cable and an optical storage like a CD or DVD. According to Xiao, Xue & Hui, (2016, p.053103), a critical analysis indicates that the use of photons or light is made in logic gates present in a computer. An emphasis is also made on the switching mode of the logic gates which is achieved using nonlinear optical effects as signals are combined. Moreover, Resonators are also used which enable energy build up from constructive interference hence promoting optical nonlinear effects (Xiao, Xue & Hui, 2016, p.053103). The Future of Optical Computers While optical computers still dominate, numerous advancements about their future are emerging that will translate for their better performance (Xiao, Xue & Hui, 2016, p.053103). Among the advancements is that the optic computers will utilize crystals and metamaterials to control light, the introduction of signal processing and frequency doubling under minimum power usage. Hence, through these, super fast and lightweight systems will be developed (Computers & Security Editorial Board, 2018, p. iii).

In my opinion, as different individuals are driven by curiosity and anxiety to become experts in the optics field, there will be a total improvement in optical computers due to competition amongst individuals. Again, people have a goal that they are known for the invention of best technologies, therefore, this will in turn call for a full transition in optical computers for the better. The advantages of optical computers. Acknowledgement to Reviewers of Computers in (2018, p.11) explains that the interest and passion for optical computers are necessitated by the advantages that revolve around the use of optical computers. Not only does it entail usage but also research studies that have been by different experts in the optical computing field. After contrasting between the modern electronic computers and the optic computers different outcomes emerge.
