Abstract

An all-optical AND gate based on optically induced nonlinear polarization rotation of a probe light in a bulk semiconductor optical amplifier is realized at a bit rate of 2.5Gbit/s. By operating the AND gate in an up and inverted wavelength conversion scheme, the extinction ratio is improved by 8dB compared with previously published work.

Optical AND operation. The time scale is 400ps/div. “Output data A” is AND operation using inverted, up-conversion scheme, showing much improve extinction ratio; while “output data B” is AND operation using non-inverted schemes (optical trace is taken from Ref. [6]), showing fluctuations in logic “0” state.
