We present a novel method to overcome arbitrary phase output in all optical logic gates that are realized with linear optical modules. The arbitrary phase prevents cascading of the optical gates that realize a high order Boolean processor. The proposed method relies on intra-bit phase encoding and a decision algorithm which results in BER<10-5 for up to 5 cascaded levels of linear all optical device.
