Abstract

We demonstrate fast and low energy all optical flip-flop devices based on asymmetric active-multimode interferometer using high-mesa waveguide structure. The implemented devices showed high speed alloptical flip-flop operation with 25ps long pulses. The rising and falling times of the output signal were 121 ps and 25 ps, respectively. The required set and reset pulse energies were only 7.1 fJ and 3.4 fJ, respectively.
