Abstract
A novel Optical Decision Circuit (ODC) based on a Mach- Zehnder Interferometer with a Gain Clamped Semiconductor Optical Amplifier in each arm is proposed. Both its static and dynamic response from simulation results demonstrate that the ODC exhibits excellent reshaping capabilities. Also the high speed response of the ODC has been investigated.
