Paper Abstract

Optical processor architectures are discussed for operation with subnanosecond optical gates without memory capability. Switching is discussed for GaAs gates with and without Fabry-Perot resonator. Recent demonstrations of picosecond absorptive inverter gates are reported and discussed in II-VI semiconductors in relation with the requirement for cascadability and stability of operation.
