Advancing artificial neural networks to the coherent optical domain offers several advantages, such as a filterless synaptic interconnect with increased routing flexibility. Towards this direction, a coherent synaptic receptor with integrated multiplication function will be experimentally evaluated for a 1-GHz train of 130-ps spikes.
