Abstract
Various multifunctional operations are performed by proposing designs of optical adder, subtractor, comparator, and decoder at 60  Gb/s. In all operations, constructive interference is produced by choosing optimized parameters, i.e., optical pulse generator power, input power, semiconductor optical amplifier-Mach–Zehnder interferometer parameters, and so on, for delivering a true output signal. An optical pulse-generated signal is required for all operations except addition, subtraction and equal to in a comparator.
