Abstract
The concept of soliton provides a line in research in telecommunications systems. In the present study, a soliton all-optical logic AND gate with semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA)-assisted Mach–Zehnder interferometer has been numerically simulated and investigated. The dependence of the output quality factor (Q-factor) on the soliton characteristics and SOA parameters has been examined and assessed. The obtained results demonstrate that the soliton AND gate is capable of operating at a data rate of 80  Gb/s with logical correctness and high-output Q-factor.
