Abstract

We propose a novel idea for the suppression of the dominant mode of the single-mode Fabry-Pérot laser diode (SMFP-LD) to realize all-optical multi-logic functions and a digital adder. The basic principle of the proposed scheme is the power management of input beams to suppress the dominant mode of the SMFP-LD for multi-input injection locking. The proposed principle is explained and implemented to realize all-optical multi-logic functions and a digital adder at an input data rate of 10 Gbps. A clear eye opening with an extinction ratio of about 12 dB and a rising-falling time of less than 40 ps are observed at the outputs. The bit error rate (BER) performance is measured for all logic gates and half adder operation. We found there is no BER floor up to BER of 10−12 and the maximum power penalty of about 1.2 dB at a BER of 10−9.
