Coupled optical bistable systems Academic Article uri icon


  • The coupling of two bistable systems is considered. The coupling is shown to modify the behavior of the output such that it exhibits multistability. Moreover, the resulting system is shown to exhibit bistability for parameters for which the uncoupled systems have monostable behavior. 1984 The American Physical Society.
