Paper Abstract

An experimental study is presented of dynamic instabilities in optical bistability with two-state atoms in a cavity. The basic conceptual simplicity of the system as well as the degree to which it has been quantitatively characterized allows precise comparisons between theory and experiment. Instability boundaries in the parameter space of atomic and cavity detunings, of atomic cooperativity and of intracavity intensity are discussed and compared with theory.
