Abstract
The physics of low-energy optical switching in both ideal and experimental devices is discussed. Guided-wave optical bistable devices are predicted to have the lowest switching energy per unit gain of any optical switching devices. So far, the bistable diode laser amplifier is the only optical device which can switch with the same switching efficiency as the best electronic device.
