Paper Abstract

The bifurcation structure of the transmitted light power for an electro-optic bistable device with delayed feedback has been investigated. We report a bifurcation scheme with hysteresis in the bifurcation points, so that we obtain different values of the bifurcation points when the bifurcation parameter is increas-ing and decreasing. This hysteresis phenomenon has been investigated experimentally and numerically, and we find that the time dependence of the bifurcation parameter is crucial to the bifurcation mechanism and to the critical values for which the transitions to period -2, period-4, etc. occur.
