  • An all-optical half-adder is designed by combining the nonlinear effect and linear interference effect of photonic crystals. By dividing the light source into two parts equally, the half adder AND gate and XOR gate are designed separately. The nonlinear effect is used to realize the AND gate with high contrast, and the linear interference effect is used to realize the XOR logic, so that the overall response speed of the device is improved. In this design structure, the device only has threshold requirements for the signal light source power. When the signal power is greater than 51.4 mW/μm2, it has stable output and strong anti-interference ability. The designed contrast of the half adder carry output port is 20.69 dB, and the output port contrast is 20.13 dB. The data transfer rate is 0.75 Tbits/s and the occupied area is 623 μm2.
