Abstract

We describe the results of experiments on bistable and multistable self-focusing devices using liquid suspensions of dielectric particles as the nonlinear medium. The nonlinear parameters for this medium are calculable from first principles. A simple model predicts regions of bistability and multistability that are in good agreement with the experimental observations.
