Paper Abstract

We present here a theoretical discussion of the effect of nonlocality and saturation in transverse optical bistability. It is found that the switching conditions, switching power and characteristics are considerably different from the situation where these effects are not accounted for. We also include an analytical study of the transverse self-phase modulation effect and relate the key parameters explicitly to the transverse bistability switching condition and bistability.
