Paper Abstract

A high-contrast optical switch-attenuator was developed on the basis of frustrated total internal reflection. High-attenuation coefficient (90 dB) and high switch speed have been achieved. Experimental characteristics of the optical switch are presented. Employment of the optical switch-attenuator in laser systems is also reported.
