We propose a novel idea for the suppression of the dominant mode of the single-mode Fabry-Pérot laser diode (SMFP-LD) to realize alloptical multi-logic functions and a digital adder. The basic principle of the proposed scheme is the power management of input beams to suppress the dominant mode of the SMFP-LD for multi-input injection locking. The proposed principle is explained and implemented to realize all-optical multi-logic functions and a digital adder at an input data rate of 10 Gbps. A

The bit error rate (BER) performance is measured for all logic gates and half adder operation. We found there is no BER floor up to BER of 10 12 and the maximum power penalty of about 1.2 dB at a BER of 10 9 .
