Optical circuits received increasing interest as an
alternative to conventional (i.e. electronic) systems - in particular
for ultra-high-speed networks and optical interconnects. Consequently, how to design and synthesize the corresponding circuits
became an important EDA problem. But existing solutions relied
on a restricted gate library leading to rather expensive circuits.
In this work, we introduce an improved gate library by providing
optical realizations for many further standard operations such
as AND, OR, XOR, etc. By this, synthesis approaches can exploit
a broader variety of building blocks and, hence, realize circuits
of less costs.
