Abstract

A flip-flop (FF) is a kind of latch and the simplest form of memory device, which stores various values either temporarily or permanently. Optical FF memories form a fundamental building block for all- optical packet switches in next-generation communication networks. An all-optical clocked delay FF using a single terahertz optical asymmetric demultiplexer-based interferometric switch is proposed and described. Numerical simulation results are also reported.
