Abstract

Bistable operation of an initially detuned Fabry-Perot etalon with a spatially varying transverse input is studied numerically. Non-linear medium propagation effects are accounted for explicitly. Fast Fourier transforms are used to treat beam diffraction, providing a computationally efficient numerical algorithm. Steady state bistable loops are computed for a Fresnel number close to unity, under both self-focusing and defocusing conditions. Beam diffraction causes earlier switch-on in the defocusing case.
