Paper Abstract

A concept is presented for a monolithic, integrated, C3 laser amplifier exhibiting bistable output characteristics, which is composed of three distinct regions: laser, amplifier and optically bistable etalon. Operational characteristics are discussed for single frequency amplification of a low power, digital, optical signal. Theoretical models are viewed with respect to known experimental results. The concept indicates a possible application for improving optical repeater operation.
