In this paper, we present self-switching mechanism using Semiconductor Optical Amplifier (SOA)-assisted Mach-Zehnder interferometer (MZI) considering dynamic gain response of the SOA. The effect of key structural and input pulse parameters of an all-optical MZI self-switches is identified and their role in the operation of self-switch is analyzed. The optimum values of these parameters must be correctly selected and adapted so as to ensure the satisfaction of the best operating conditions. Simulation results demonstrate that key parameters must be suitably must be modified to the specific all-optical self-switching application.
Keywords: Mach-Zehnder interferometer, performance parameters variation, Semiconductor Optical Amplifier, All-optical self-switch.
