Abstract

A reversible, all optical implementation of an interaction gate. One embodiment of the interaction gate is a dual-beam version of an optical nonlinear interface. A second embodiment is a dual-beam Fabry-Perot (F-P) switch. The device is a universal computation building block from which arbitrary computing circuits can be constructed.
