Abstract
We present a theoretical study of optical bistability and differential amplification, arising as a consequence of the nonlinear Kerr effect in mutually coupled nonlinear microcavity resonators. The dependence of the bistability and differential amplification on various parameters of the coupling range and the resonators is investigated. Multiple closely spaced bistability of the internal intensity in the microresonator is found with appropriate parameters. The results may be useful for a complex logic, memory or switch operation system.
