Paper Abstract

A novel scheme for an ultrahigh-speed all-optical full adder based on dual-pump four-wave mixing (FWM), including parallel dual-pump FWM and orthogonal dual-pump FWM, in two semiconductor optical amplifiers (SOAs) is proposed. In this scheme, the polarization-shift-keying (PolSK) modulation format is used, so pattern-dependent degradation can be reduced. The proposed all-optical full adder is simple, compact, and can accommodate ultrahigh-speed operation. By numerical simulation, it is theoretically investigated using the broad-band dynamic model.
