Abstract

Transverse effects are discussed that are related to optical diffraction and carrier diffusion in a bistable semiconductor Fabry-Perot interferometer with optical nonlinearity arising from variations in carrier concentrations. The system instability with respect to the homogeneous self-oscillations and self-focusing stratification is considered. The formation and pulsation of the structures are investigated in the numerical simulation.
