Abstract:

We propose an all-optical logic device made of a bent waveguide with a Kerr-like nonlinear interface. It could provide an OR gate, exclusive-OR XOR gate and AND gate. We could obtain different transmission results by modifying the bending angle. The numerical simulation results show that the device functions as OR, XOR and AND gates.
