Abstract
The physics of low energy switching in both optical and electronic devices is briefly introduced. The properties and applications of bistable diode amplifiers are reviewed. It is stressed that bistable dode laser amplifiers are the most energy efficient optical switching devices so far demonstrated. The concept of colored optical interconnects is introduced for applications in closely spaced wavelength division multiplexing transmission systems. The implementation of a generalized, optically updatable, optical crossbar switch is discussed.
