Optical bistability with surface plasmons beyond plane waves in a nonlinear dielectric Academic Article uri icon


  • Optical bistability with surface plasmons is studied assuming nonlinear polaritons in a Kerr medium. Significant departures from the plane-wave results for the switching intensities and hysteresis curves are predicted. 1986 Optical Society of America.
