Paper Abstract

A four-level model, involving the ground, one-exciton and two-exciton states as well as a high-lying molecular term through which the two-exciton state annihilates, is used for analyzing the bistable optical response of a thin film built up of oriented molecular aggregates. We focus on the effects of inhomogeneous broadening of the exciton optical transitions and exciton-exciton annihilation on bistability of the thin film response. It turns out that the inhomogeneous broadening, preventing generally the occurrence of bistability, may be suppressed considerably due to a fast exciton-exciton annihilation.
