Paper Abstract

We consider the dynamics of a nonlinear Fabry-Perot interferometer symmetrically pumped by two light beam. An analysis of the conditions for realization of symmetric and asymmetric modes of optical bi- and multistability has been performed using a theory of degenerate four-wave mixing adapted to a Fabry-Perot resonator with amplitude-phase nonlinearity. Complexity of the dynamic behavior due to symmetry breaking bifurcations has been investigated both theoretically and numerically.
