Paper Abstract

Multiple pulse operation of passive mode-locked lasers with nonlinear refractive index of intracavity elements has been investigated. The hysteresis dependence of number of pulses in established regime on the pump power has been found. It is shown that this number depends also on initial condition of generation. The application of discovered multistability and hysteresis to optical communications and information processing is discussed.
