Abstract

We present a logical design of an all-optical processor that performs modular arithmetic. The overall design is based a set of interconnected modules that use all-optical gates to perform simple logical functions. The all-optical logic gates are based on the semiconductor optical amplifier nonlinear loop. Simulation results are presented and some practical design issues are discussed.
