Paper Abstract

All-optical NOR and OR gates using the same setup, based on cross-polarization modulation in a single semiconductor optical amplifier, have been demonstrated experimentally at 10 Gbit/s with two and three input signals. The results show good dynamic extinction ratios of 13.2 and 11.0 dB for NOR and OR outputs, respectively. The logic output performance of this logic configuration versus input signal and probe power have been investigated experimentally.
