The operation of an all-optical binary half adder consisting of only two semiconductor laser amplifier in a loop mirror (SLALOM) was explained. Each of the SLALOMs consisted of a polarization controller (PC), used to control the bias of the loop and an SOA. The operation speed of the proposed scheme was up to 40 Gbps due to wavelenghth conversion based on cross phase modulation.
