Abstract

It is generally believed that in optical bistability realistic fluctuations of the injected laser signal can influence the bistable behavior of the system in an important way. As an illustration of this general statement, we present in this paper the case of absorptive optical bistability (AOB) with random Gaussian fluctuations of the driving electric field amplitude.
