The main goal of this article is to design an optimized optical logic gates which are a key point to improve and enhance the speed of next era photonic integrated circuit. These kinds of integrated circuits are much more capable for high-speed transmission of information and very low energy loss. The energy dissipation by any integrated circuit in form of heat reduces the life span of device. This kind of design protects it and improves the life expectancy of the integrated circuit. In this article, opto-electronic conversion and vice versa are taken out.
