Abstract

The implantation of an all-optical eXclusive-OR (XOR) gate run at 160 Gb/s using semiconductor optical amplifiers (SOAs)-based turbo-switched Mach-Zehnder interferometer (TS-MZI) is theoretically investigated and verified. The dependence of the quality factor (QF) on the signal and SOA key operating parameters is examined and assessed, including the impact of amplified spontaneous emission in order to obtain realistic results. A higher QF is obtained when using SOAs-based TS-MZI than when using conventional SOAs-based MZI.
