Abstract
The limitation of conventional electronics is mitigated by all optical integrated circuits which have potential of high speed computing and information processing. In this work, an all optical AND gate using optical Kerr effect and optical bistability of a plasmonic based Mach-Zehnder interferometer (MZI) is proposed. An MZI is capable for switching of light according to the intensities of optical input signal. The paper constitutes with mathematical formulation of device and its study is verified using finite difference time domain (FDTD) method.
