Abstract

We experimentally demonstrate an all-optical binary counter composed of four semiconductor optical amplifier based all-optical switching gates. The time-of-flight optical circuit operates with bit-differential delays between the exclusive-OR gate used for modulo-2 binary addition and the AND gate used for binary carry detection. A movie of the counter operating in real time is presented.

Figures (5)

Fig. 1.
Fig. 1.

Logic diagram of the binary counter with bit-differential delay. The COUNT memory has a capacity of m bits and the CARRY memory has a capacity of m-1 bits. The delay for the link between the COUNT memory and the AND gate input is m bits. The delay for the link between the CARRY memory and the XOR gate input is m-1 bits. The optical pulses to be counted are input singly with a period of m bits.

Fig. 2.
Fig. 2.

Schematic diagram of the experimental all-optical counter architecture. The capacities of the COUNT and CARRY memory loops are 297 bits and 296 bits respectively (1ns per bit). Each TOAD contains an SOA, fibre couplers and fibre polarisation controllers as described in the text. DFB=gain-switched distributed feedback laser, I/P=input, O/P=output, EDFA=erbium doped fibre amplifier, EAM=electroabsorption modulator.
