Paper Abstract

We report on optical bistability in thin films of evaporated CdS at 514 nm. The main mechanism is traced back to thermally induced increasing absorption. Besides all optical devices, externally controlled SEED structures are realized 'by integrated electrical con-tacts. Experimental results on the steady-state and the dynamic behavior of both types of elements are presented.
