6 July 1994 Theory of optical cavityless bistability in a thin-layer element
Author Affiliations +
We analyze the behavior of a thin-layer absorbing element taking into account superradiance, the local field effect and detuning. The dynamical range of optical bistability and its contrast ratio are calculated.
