All optical signal processing in integrated photonic circuits and its applications in optical computing and communications require the ability to control light with light. Therefore, all-optical switching devices have attracted a lot of attentions. In this paper, two all-optical logic gates are designed by using of nonlinear Mach-Zehnder interferometer and straight plasmonic control waveguides. All- optical logic gates are based on the metal-insulator-metal (MIM) plasmonic waveguides. Using of the plasmonic structure leads to reduction of the device length and power consumptions.
