Abstract : Using an optical fibre-coupled semiconductor laser diode OBD with output feedback pumping operation in 5 modes (differential gain, bistability, zero-bias, inverted differential gain, and inverted bistability) has been realized respectively, and 5 elementary optical logic functions (AND, OR, NOT, NAND, and NOR) and some optical signal processing such as limiting, reshaping, and triggering have been implemented.
