Paper Abstract

If cw all-optical bistability is to be applied in digital information processing then it will be essential to achieve reliable, cascadable, error-free optical responses at low optical power levels. The possibilities of achieving low power cw bistability of either an optoelectronic or an optothermal origin is discussed and the minimum likely powers are inferred.
