Paper Abstract

Problems of stability of bistable states in aspect of information storage are considered. Influence of temperature dependencies of absorption coefficient and relaxation time of free electrons onto realization of bistability and possibility of self-switching were investigated in context of a point-wise model. As a result various regimes of interaction of light pulse with the semiconductor were revealed due to the numerical simulation and parametrical analysis. Principal possibility of instability of both bistable states, which promote development of self- switching, was first shown in the model.
