Hi all.
Need suggestions on how to implement or find a 'toslink' shutter switch, or optical fiber switch.

Application is a simple switch, if possible on single fiber. (Easy if two fibers)
Light sent to a handheld pushbutton that puts a mirror on the fiber end and reflects the light back on the same fiber.

And if there is a kind of 'toslink' optical jack that will emit light out and sense light bounced back in. (full duplex)

Jack with LED and photodiode===========================================mirror

Thanks. I saw only transmitters, and the 'shutter' they refer to, is a plain tiny door that closes the jack entry when vacant to avoid dust in.

Let me try other words...
How would you make a handheld pushbutton switch without galvanic connection, (no electricity at the switch) ?
