Paper Abstract

In this paper we report the observation of periodic oscillations and chaos in a hybrid optical bistable system with an optical delay and examine some of the practical aspects of these phenomena. A simple explanation of the square-wave output from such instabilities is given, along with a suggestion for possible all-optical square-wave generators.
