Abstract

By using the gain nonlinearity characteristics of semiconductor optical amplifier, an all-optical binary half adder at 10 Gbps is demonstrated. The half adder operates in a single mechanism, which is cross gain modulation. The half adder utilizes two logic functions of SUM and CARRY, which can be demonstrated by using XOR and AND gates, respectively. The extinction ratios of both XOR and AND gates are about 6.1 dB. By achieving this experiment, we also explored the possibilities for the enhanced complex logic operation and higher chances for multiple logic integration.
