Abstract

An optical flip-flop with two nonlinear étalons as inverter gates was investigated. The results show that the device works well for a large coupling constant, large detuning (which lead to a high contrast and stable operation), and short feedback delay. Based on calculated results, an optical flip-flop was constructed by coupling two optical triode switches using a nonlinear étalon and gradient-index lenses, and successful operation was demonstrated.
