Saturable Interferometer Theory of Optical Bistability

  • N. M. Lawandy

Abstract

Recently, a large volume of theoretical work has emerged concerning the theory of optical bistability (OB). This effort has resulted due to the intriguing nature of the stability questions which arise in OB as well as the experimental realization of optical bistable device (OBD). The demonstration of a variety of OBD configurations has added mementum to the theme of using such devices as memory and logic elements in integrated optics.
