Abstract
In this paper, we prose ultrafast components for an all-optical digital processing such as logic gates, demultiplexers and analogue-to-digital converters. They are based on Kerr nonlinearity in single-mode fiber interferometric configurations. The potential for an extremely high-bit- rate processing is due to a femtosecond response time of Kerr effect in silica optical fibers. Optical schemes of the proposed devices are presented, and their functional capabilities are discussed.
