Paper Abstract

We discuss the possible implementation of a complete set of all-optical logical gates using second harmonic generation and parametric down-conversion. We also experimentally tested an all-optical single-bit half-adder made of a XOR and an AND gate, operating on binary stripes encoded as amplitude modulation of the transverse pattern of laser beam.
