D. A. B. Miller, "Bistable Optical Devices: Physics and Operating Characteristics" Laser Focus 18, No. 4, 79-84 (1982).

Optical bistability represents a new kind of nonlinear system in optics. It offers a means of realizing all-optical switching, amplifying and signal processing devices. Research towards practical devices is still at an early stage. However, prospects exist for simple devices combining good performance capabilities and the unique attributes of all-optical systems. These prospects are discussed
