A novel frequency encoded all optical logic gates exploiting polarization insesensitive four wave mixing in semiconductor optical amplifier, filtering property of ADD/DROP multiplexer and non-linearity of reflective semiconductor amplifier
All optical logic gates exploiting polarization independent four wave mixing in semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA), filtering property of ADD/DROP multiplexer (ADM) and non-linearity in reflective semiconductor optical amplifier (RSOA) have been proposed. The logic gates proposed are polarization independent which ensures hardware simplicity and greater speed. The all optical frequency encoded logic gates NOT, OR, NOR, AND, NAND, X-OR, X-NOR are implemented which are very useful in optical computing ad signal processing, cryptography, etc. The logic gates proposed have the advantages that there is no intensity loss dependent problem, and are polarization and temperature insensitive.
