Abstract

Evidence of bistability induced by radiation pressure in a system operating at millimeter bandwidth is presented. The transmittance of a microwave cavity equipped with a movable mirror becomes bistable under the variation of two control parameters: the incident field intensity and the incident field frequency. Good agreement between theory and experiment has been achieved.
