Abstract
An all-optical and ultra-fast combinatorial network based on semiconductor optical amplifiers and able to detect packet contention in a 2x2 photonic node is demonstrated. The signal at the output of the combinatorial network has a contrast ratio higher than 8.4 dB. The combinatorial network is used for demonstrating the feasibility of a 2x2 photonic node at 160 Gb/s.
