An all optical multiplexer will be implemented.
Two nonlinear ring resonators with different switching
thresholds will be utilized for creating the proposed
multiplexer. The proposed structure will have two input
and one output port. A control port will be utilized to
decide which input data can be illustrated at the output
port. The rise time for the proposed structure is about 2
ps. The proposed device can be utilized for implementing
all optical systems and networks.
