Abstract
We show and demonstrate a new concept of a Bistable Optically controlled Semiconductor Switch : BOSS. The switch can be turned on and off with light pulses of different wavelengths in a nanosecond time scale. The calculations promise high current ( MA )and high voltage ( '100kV ) feasibilities. We use a control mechanism of the whole bulk material at the same time. We discuss semiconductor and impurity materials for this new device.
