Abstract

Using computer simulations, we demonstrate an optical cascadable AND gate based on soliton interaction in a fiber Bragg grating. A single soliton that is launched into the device is backreflected. When two solitons are launched, one of the solitons is transmitted while the other is backreflected. The time delay between the solitons may be few times longer than the duration of the solitons. We show that the interaction causes an increase in the frequency of one of the solitons that enables its transmission through the grating bandgap.
