Abstract :

The performance of all-optical logic NOR gate based on quantum dot-semiconductor optical amplifier (QD-SOA) is simulated. By solving the rate equations of QD-SOAs when incorporated in the arms of a Mach-Zehnder interferometer (MZI) the performance of NOR gate is numerically investigated. The model takes into account the impact of the amplified spontaneous emission, the input pulse energy and the injection current density on the system?s quality factor. Results show that NOR gate using QD-SOA is capable of operating at speeds of 250 Gbit/s with proper quality-factor.
