Abstract

A technique for high-speed, all-optical pattern recognition based on cross correlation in a segmented semiconductor optical amplifier (SSOA) is presented. A counterpropagating pump–probe setup is used to perform cross correlation of the spatial gain–loss pattern in the SSOA with the optical data pattern (pump), and the result is read out with a counterpropagating probe. Cross correlation of 4-bit patterns at 85 Gbits/s is experimentally demonstrated. Simulations show reasonable agreement with experimental measurements and are used to address scalability to higher bit rates and longer data patterns.
