Paper Abstract

An optical switch has been designed, built, and tested and is based upon an acousto-optical modulator with dual feedback and a short carrier round trip time. It is observed that: (1) the switching transient itself displays oscillatory behavior; (2) the pre-and post-switching stable states seem to display chaos; and (3) slight variation in feedback will convert the switch to an optical oscillator/modulator with a characteristic zigzag output-input curve.
