Paper Abstract

We describe the operating characteristics of the nonlinear Fabry-Perot optical logic device. A simple theory shows that this device can operate with psec switching times and pJ switching energies. Important transient effects are also described. The results of a com-puter simulation of these transient effects is also presented.
