Paper Abstract

The possible improvement in the performance of networks without electro/optical conversion has been investigated by introducing optical memories. In particular, different buffering methods are presented, where optical signal is stored in the memory blocks. The need to process signals at electrical level limits the performance of transmission links or computing systems. This limit can be overcome through the introduction of all optical processing, thus avoiding the electro/optical conversion.
