I have searched the web and found that optical switches are activated either through mechanical or electro/magnetics. Making them sort of Optomechanical or optoelectronic switches.
Lets exclude electromagnetically induced transparent switches. Are there other solid state based optical switches at are fully operated using lasers only?
I would be grateful if you could include link and/or references.
The optical switches I am after typically receives a laser at point A then output it at point B, when it is activated via electrical means (or magnetic), it cuts the signal output to point B. So instead of being switched on and off by electric or magnetic means, are there solid state based optical switches that are switched on and off by Laser?
