Abstract

The optical bistability occurring in laser diode amplifiers is used to design an all-optical logic gate capable to provide the whole set of logic functions. The structure of the reported logic gate is based on two connected 1550nm Laser Amplifiers (Fabry-Perot and Distributed Feedback Laser Amplifiers).
