Paper Abstract

A model of nonlinear optical system surrounded by two loops of feedback is investigated. The cell with the vapor of rubidium Λ - type atoms is taken in the capacity of nonlinear element. Two modes of near-resonant electromagnetic field interacting with the cell are involved in the feedback. Two-dimensional optical bistability domain in location of input field intensities is obtained and dependence of its form and magnitude from the system parameters (photon detunings, feedback factor etc.) is investigated. "Input -output" relations corresponding to different trajectories in the bistability domain are obtained. Cross-hysteresis is studied.
