Abstract:

It was the goal of this proposal to study the process of wavelength conversion and wavelength encoded processing in semiconductor laser types of devices. In particular, we report on 1 the implementation of Boolean logic using wavelength encoded inputs, 2 the use of frequency modulation to control the transmission of a Fabry-Perot laser, 3 nonlinear spectral filtering of a multi-wavelength signal, 4 wavelength-conversion and logic operation based on bistable diode laser amplifiers, including a study of crosstalk, switching power, bit-error-rates, and demonstration of an optically controllable space-switch, 5 wavelength-conversion by a T-gate device, 6 wavelength conversion using four-wave mixing in a Fabry-Perot edge-emitting and vertical cavity surface emitting laser, and 7 high-speed polarization switching ill vertical-cavity lasers
