Abstract
Two designs for fibre based optical logic and switching elements are presented. The problem of switching entire ultrashort pulses is addressed and the solution of employing dispersion to generate communication within the pulse is presented. This work shows how solitons can be exploited in the devices to give excellent switching characteristics as well as ensuring that there are no detrimental dispersive effects.
