This paper reports observations of a Stark tunable bistable optical device (BOD) (Smith et al., 1977) which uses the interaction between the asQ(6,6) transitions in NH3 gas and the R(18) line of a (C-13)(O-16)2 laser. It is shown that optical bistability can be observed using this laser as the nonlinear element. The effect of Doppler broadening on the Stark bistability is shown via numerical calculations. The observed effect is consistent with results of the theoretical analysis.
