In this study, J-K flip-flop is proposed utilizing electro-optic effect of lithium niobate based Mach-Zehnder interferometers (MZIs). J-K Flip flop is most versatile flip-flop amid basic flip-flops. It has vast applications in data storage, data transfer, frequency division, binary counters etc. Lithium niobate (LiNbO3) based MZIs provide both the required bandwidth and the equally important means for minimizing the effects of dispersion. The work is carried out by simulating proposed device with Beam propagation method. The paper also constitutes the mathematical description of device and thereafter simulation using MATLAB.
