Abstract

We demonstrate logic functionalities in a high-speed all-optical logic circuit based on differential Mach-Zehnder interferometers with semiconductor optical amplifiers as the nonlinear optical elements. The circuit, implemented by hybrid integration of the semiconductor optical amplifiers on a planar lightwave circuit platform fabricated in silica glass, can be flexibly configured to realize a variety of Boolean logic gates. We present both simulations and experimental demonstrations of cascaded all-optical operations for 80-Gb/s on-off keyed data.

The injection current into the 2-mm long SOA was 300 mA, while the input cw power and average probe power (at 10 GHz repetition rate) were 4.5 dBm and −11 dBm, respectively [28].

(b) Comparison of the simulated and measured spectra of the output OOK data from one SOA together with the modulated cw carrier output (transmitted through a delayed interference filter, which partially suppresses the input signal at ‒500 GHz). The simulated curve is offset vertically by 10 dB, for clarity, while the y-axis shows the SOA power measured with an optical spectrum analyzer.

Schematic of measurement set-up for characterization of the logic chip (showing electrical connections as dotted lines) for producing a 10-Gb/s signal driving the mode locked laser (MLL) and 40-Gb/s signal driving the lithium niobate modulator. PC: polarization controller; EDFA: erbium-doped fiber amplifier; BPF: bandpass filter. The 10-Gb/s signal from the mode locked laser is multiplexed to 40 Gb/s, amplified and then multiplexed to 80 Gb/s. The output of the 80-Gb/s multiplexor is then split into four copies, generating either data or data bar signals depending on the delay.
