Abstract

A novel scheme for all-optical label reading and packet routing is proposed. The architecture is comprised of all-optical logic XOR gates and all-optical flip-flops based on single Mach-Zehnder interferometers incorporating semiconductor optical amplifiers (SOA-MZIs). The simulation results show that a very small penalty (less than 0.45 dB) for 10 Gbit/s packet processing can be achieved.
