Abstract

Experimental results of a study of the switching dynamics of bistable localized states in a single-mirror feedback system with sodium vapor as the nonlinear medium are presented. The type of switching (on or off) is determined by the polarization state of the addressing beam, which gives a robust—because it is phase insensitive—way of controlling the direction of switching. Critical and noncritical slowing down are demonstrated.
