Paper Abstract

To achieve an extremely high productivity and accuracy the processor can be based on digital optics. The investigations in this area are directed both on essential increasing of the informative capacity as well as speed of memory devices operation and also for functional completness ensuring of optical systems. A fruitful approach to these problems implies the application of low loss single-mode fibers. In this case the data storage device consists of the fiber loop and a few regenerators. The binary coded array of optical pulses applies the input in order to circulate through the fiber loop and to recover their parameters in regenerator. The typical pulse duration is reached 1O- 1Os and or such extreme time intervals the ultrashort pulses dynamics becomes important. Passing through various elements of data storage device the ultrashort pulses do not conserve their own parsmeters and therefore the problem of dynamic stable informative carriers csnies up. Under certain conditions the stationary optical solitons are perfectly suitable and reliable ultrashort carriers of digital information.
