Paper Abstract

Optical bistability in a Fabry-Perot cavity filled with nonlinear riedium possessing reversible bleaching under illumination by two light beams having different wavelengthes is considered theoretically. The erIiancement of optical feedback efficiency is shown to take place when simultaneous intensity changes of light waves have opposite signes. Analytical solution is obtained in a low absorption limit showing that the optical bistability can be realized with four times greater level of background losses as compared with the conventional case.
