IS12 – A compact Kerr effect based Plasmonic Logic Device for Nanotechnology Applications

This work utilizes the vital property of Kerr effect of altering the phase of optical signal to numerically investigate the plasmonic XOR/XNOR logic device for nanotechnology applications. Extinction ratio (ER) and insertion loss (IL) of basic switching element (Mach-Zehnder interferometer) is evaluated and plotted as a function of length of interferometric arms. The obtained result and compact footprints shows that the proposed logic circuit can be a potential candidate to be used in integrated circuits for nanotechnology applications.
