Paper Abstract

A four level system such as found in dyes and F2+ centres of alkali halides is irradiated by two fields in a Fabry-Perot or ring cavity.It is shown that both fields exhibit optical hysteresis and bistability.Applications such as a single element half-adder and tunable optical bistability are described.
