optical logic circuits such as the All Optical Flip Flop (AOFF). An AOFF is an all-optical bistable flip-flop that is functionally equivalent to the electrical flip-flop. In the optical flip-flop, a light pulse switches the flip-flop from one stable state to a second. Once reached, the state is maintained until another light pulse switches the flip-flop back to the first stable state. Such AOFFs can then be used to build optical RAMs, provided the optical technology can be implemented in optical integrated circuits (OIC).
