Abstract

Ultrafast optical bistability was observed in a planar optical waveguide made with a 2,9,16,23-tetra-octadecanoylamido-substituted vanadyl phthalocyanine-doped polystyrene film. Input–output curves with hysteresis characteristics were measured with laser pulses of 60-ps pulse width at 532 nm. The switchup and switchdown times were less than 10 and 20 ps, respectively. The origin of the nonlinearity giving rise to optical bistability was predominantly electronic effects.
