In this paper we present an approach for realizing an integrated all-optical logic gate. The basic principle is based upon stimulated emission process generated in an active gain medium while special interferometric photonic wave-guiding structure allows the realization of an integrated micro scale device. The operation rate of the proposed approach can theoretically reach tens of Tera-Hertz.
