Paper Abstract

Recent experiments on optical bistability in amorphous Se an GexSe1-x chalcogenide thin films are presented. The results show a strong dependence on the energy density and on the sample composition. The faster responses are for pure selenium as the content of germanium is increased the material response is slower. A simple model is proposed in order to explain the observed results.
