Paper Abstract

We consider the potential application of two crossed Fabry-Perot resonators for optical logic operations, such as for a photonic switch or an optical transistor. The crossed resonator is a three-port device that allows the signal to be separated from the control inputs and can yield cascadable gain. An examination of the required material properties reveals that the linear absorption is a crucial quantity, and that the absorption per pass must be limited to 0.05 if gain is required.
