All-optical switch controls strong beams with weak ones


Journal Article

Switches that are capable of redirecting pulses of light are important components of high speed optical communication networks. These devices help an incoming switching beam to redirect other beams via light-by-light scattering. Another desirable property property of all optical switches is that the output beams are controlled by a weaker switch beam. current switches however tend to control a weak beams with a strong one.
