Paper Abstract

All optical XOR, AND, OR, and, NOR functionality has been demonstrated experimentally using semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA) based devices at 40 Gb/s, 80 Gb/s. The performance of the optical logic operations has been analyzed by solving the rate equation of the SOA numerically. The high-speed operation is limited by the gain and phase recovery times in the SOA. In order to solve these limitations, a differential scheme for XOR operation has been experimentally investigated. This scheme is potentially capable of XOR operation to > 100 Gb/s.
