Paper Abstract

We discuss the competition between oscillating waves in two ring cavities coupled by a common amplifier on a photorefractive crystal. We determine the threshold conditions and steady-state intensity for each wave. Different steady-state regimes of oscillations were revealed by analytical treatment. Conditions for single wave oscillation and two waves simultaneous oscillation were found. Oscillation with a bistable switching is also shown to be possible. Numerical simulation of transient effects in the system has shown the possibility of controlling the oscillation regimes by external optical signals The results obtained may be of interest in the systems with optical information processing.
