OPTICAL BISTABILITY IN A GRATING WITH SLITS FILLED NONLINEAR MEDIA

By L. A. Kochetova, S. L. Prosvirnin, and V. R. Tuz

Full Article PDF (516 KB)

Abstract:
An approximate self-consistent solution of the problem of plane electromagnetic wave diffraction on a thick grating of metallic bars with slits between the bars filled a Kerr-type nonlinear dielectric is solved. The bistable operating regime of wave transmission through the grating is studied.
