Paper Abstract

The effect of external noise of different spectral distributions on the dynamic behaviour of an intrinsic optical bistable device is studied. Our experiments are performed under absorptive conditions in a sodium-filled nonlinear Fabry-Perot in the bad cavity limit. Alternatively, a bistable electronic circuit (Schmitt trigger) is shown to exhibit the same type of noise phenomena while admitting more detailed investigations.
