From the last century the reversible logic has formed as an unconventional form of computing. It is relatively very new in the area of extensive applications in low power CMOS, quantum computing, digital signal processing (DSP), nanotechnology, communication, etc. In all-optical domain with the help of Feynman and Toffli gates we represent the implementation of Reed Muller transformation technique for any canonical SOP (sum of product) expression and here also we have introduced their principle of operations and used a theoretical model to complete the task. In the field of ultra-fast all-optical signa processing Mach–Zehnder interferometer (MZI), semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA)-based, has an important function. The different logical (realization of Boolean function) functions can be executed by this method with Feynman and Toffoli gates in the domain of reversible logic-based information processing.
