In the present paper, a structure for designing all optical 2-input NAND gate based on nonlinear photonic crystal ring resonators is proposed.
The Neutron Series XTi is also equipped with end-to-end data path protection, ensuring data is protected against corruption from the host to the NAND gate. Combined with power loss protection with advanced SmartFlushTM and GuaranteedFlushTM technologies as well as a host of error correction technologies, the Neutron Series XTi secures your drive for an ultra-consistent and reliable experience.

Here, the drain current [I.sub.d] is used as an output and introduces a current threshold to determine whether the current is "high" or "low." If the current threshold is set to 0.2 nA as shown by the broken line in Figure 4, and select a [V.sub.cg] of around 0.04Vas indicated by the as indicated by arrow A in Figure 4, the output function is a NAND gate because the output current is low only for the input combination ([V.sub.ga], [V.sub.gb]) = (1,1).
MIT researchers were able to fabricate a variety of basic electronic devices on the material: an inverter; a NAND gate; a memory device; and a more complex circuit called a ring oscillator, made up of 12 interconnected transistors.
