This paper reviews very high-speed optical signal processing technology based on the instantaneous characteristic of optical nonlinearities. Focus is placed on 100-Gbit/s optical time-division multiplexing (TDM) transmission systems. The key technologies including ultrashort optical pulse generation, all-optical multiplexing/demultiplexing and optical timing extraction techniques are alse described together with their major issues and future prospects.
