Abstract
All-optical Boolean exclusive OR operation is demonstrated on a high-speed serial bit stream with a three-optical-input-fiber Sagnac interferometer that employs a semiconductor optical amplifier as the nonlinear element. Full duty cycle bit switching has been achieved at 20 GHz with low switching energies and contrast ratio as high as 10.4 dB.
