We achieved latch and gate pulse generation in a monolithically integrated semiconductor-optical-amplifier-based Mach-Zehnder interferometer-type set/reset flip-flop using ultrashort pulses. The operation of the device with 18-ps optical pulses for 40Gbps operation was verified under the condition of slow carrier recovery condition.
