Optical computation enhances speed, data transmission rate and processing power by replacing electronics with optical switching, which can be efficiently carried out in high speed signal processing through all-optical gates. This paper reviews the progressive development of the optical switching technology, and reviews a model description of all-optical switch-based beam radial. Amplitude decay time and phase decay time are also analyzed and simulated using a MATLAB program, and time response according to amplitude decay time against electric field intensity is demonstrated. The results from previous studies are also examined, and further analysis is done with simulators like RSoft Photonics. The simulation results confirm that the design can be implemented at high data rates, with the focus being on the beam radial shift effect on the performance of the switch and the deduction of the switching speed.
