    Abstract

    In this paper we describe and demonstrate a new generation of all-optical devices (Demultiplexer, Routing switch and Clock extractor) based on a recently developed Terahertz Optical Asymmetric Demultiplexer (TOAD). These devices are capable of ultrafast all-optical operation and can be used in the future terabit optical networks.
