Abstract
Dispersive optical bistability is reviewed with particular emphasis on trans- mission characteristics, time dependence, cascadability and fan-out capability of bistable diode laser amplifiers. Bistability in inhomogeneously excited diode lasers, gain quenching and polarization bistability are also discussed. Different applica- tions of bistable lasers are then reviewed, including all-optical regeneration, time- division switching, colored optical interconnects, optical crossbar switches and optical look-up tables.
