Optical logic gates are key elements of optical network. This paper reviews different types of All Optical logic gates, various methods and materials used for construction of logic gates using photonic crystal (PhCs), discusses their novel properties, and reports recent advances in PhC components. We present a study of various structures used for construction of optical gates and methods used for construction like finite difference time domain and beam propagation method adapted by various researchers. By analyzing these comparisons we conclude that using 2-D PhC and finite difference time domain method we can improve the performance and reduce the size of optical logic gates.
