The dynamical properties of dispersive optical bistability in a semiconductor laser biased from below to above threshold are investigated both experimentally and theoretically. The optical bistability switch-off time is found to decrease continuously from below to above threshold. A fast switch-off in less than 100 ps has been observed when the laser operates in the injection-locked condition.
