In this paper, we investigate the impact of the most common catastrophic and parametric faults in photonic systems. We demonstrate, using the example of a photonic correlator, the effectiveness of testing techniques for fault detection in photonic systems. To the best of our knowledge, this constitutes the first attempt to define a fault model and to develop a test methodology for photonic systems.
