Paper Abstract

The design of an all-optical exclusive-OR gate and a set-reset flip-flop is described, and the operation characteristics of both circuits using nonlinear ZnSe interference filters is reported. While both functions could be demonstrated, long-term stability in excess of 30 s was not obtained for the flip-flop operation.
