Optical triode characteristics of a nonlinear etalon combined with GRIN lenses are investigated. This configuration facilitates adjustment of detuning by a factor of 10-50 and enables a high on-off ratio operation using a double detuning operation. An optical gate and spatial switches are also fabricated using this configuration.
