Samenvatting

The routing functionality by all-optically interconnecting semiconductor-based all-optical logic gates and flip-flops is demonstrated in the frame of an all-optical label swapping (AOLS) network. We experimentally show that the output of the all-optical 2-bit correlator is capable of toggling the states of the integrated flip-flop every 2.5 ns via an adaptation stage. High extinction ratios are obtained at the output of the flip-flop, which can be used to feed a high-speed wavelength converter to complete the routing functionality of the AOLS node. The potential integration of these semiconductor optical amplifier integrated Mach-Zehnder interferometer-based devices make the proposed approach a very interesting solution for future packet switched optical networks.
