Abstract

We carry out a theoretical analysis of Kerr bistability in a double-coupler optical fiber loop resonator in a case of two coexisting input optical fields, and we propose a set–reset (S–R) flip-flop operation that uses two input ports. We found that in the optimum case set and reset operation can be achieved at relatively low optical input powers.
