Theory of Optical Bistability in Collinear Degenerate Four-Wave Mixing
The objective of this paper is to investigate optical multi-stability in collinear degenerate four-wave mixing. The theory of four-wave mixing in a lossless, isotropic Kerr medium is described and solved numerically. Multiple solutions of the two-point boundary value problem are discovered when the input fields exceed a critical intensity determined by the electric susceptibility and the interaction length of the Kerr medium.
