Abstract:

A light induced unidirectional light switch is described wherein a unidirectionally emitting medium is obtained using the method of Doppler compensation by light-induced velocity-dependent light shifts. The emission in the emitting medium can be switched on by a pulse of laser light which acts as a light induced light switch. This patent application is co-pending with my related application entitled Light-Induced Unidirectional Light Amplifier filed on the same date as subject patent application. Author
