Abstract

Solitons all-optical logic NAND and XNOR gates using semiconductor optical amplifiers-assisted Mach–Zehnder interferometers are computationally analyzed at a data rate of 80 Gb/s. The investigation of the output quality factor is included. All-optical logic gates are capable of operating at 80 Gb/s with logical correctness and acceptable quality.
