By using two main e?ects of cross-gain modulation and cross-phase modulation in semiconductor optical ampli?er-based devices, many logic functions of logic AND, OR, XOR, NOR and XNOR are successfully demonstrated. Also, complex systems including all-optical half and full adders in a combination of m...
