Abstract

A bistable optical system with distributed nonlinear elements is proposed. Novel functions are derived from the collective nature of the optical elements. Collective phenomena including spatial period-doubling bifurcations, hierarchical multistabilities, and various types of cooperative all-optical flip-flop operations are predicted to take place in the proposed optical device.
