We propose AND, NOR, and XNOR logic gates realized simultaneously for 40-Gb/s networks, in which the realization of NOR and XNOR logic gates using only MgO-doped periodically poled lithium niobate (MgO: PPLN) is reported. In our configuration, we exploit broadband quasi-phase matching (QPM) cascaded second harmonic and difference-frequency generation (cSHG/DFG), cascaded sum-frequency and difference-frequency generation (cSFG/DFG) in one MgO:PPLN, and the narrow band QPM sum-frequency generation (SFG) in another MgO:PPLN. The performance, including the quality-factor (Q-factor) and extinction ratio (ER), of the proposed multifunctional logic device is also simulated.
