This paper describes  the operation of an optical buffer memory device in order to demonstrate a novel function made possible by dressed photons (DPs). It was shown that output signals repeatedly appeared with a period of 150 ps by applying a readout optical pulse to the device. Next, to demonstrate the prominent performance achievable by DP devices, single-photon operation with a probability as high as 99.3 % was confirmed. Finally, the magnitudes of the dissipated and consumed energies of the DP device were shown to be 104 times lower than those of a CMOS logic gate .
