Abstract

The transmission properties of coupled nonlinear Fabry–Perot resonators with reflection coatings are studied. A general characteristic matrix approach for nonlinear layered media is developed for the case of normal incidence of linearly polarized light. Use of reflection coatings and coupled systems results in the lowering of the bistability threshold.
