AbstractThe effects of a squeezed vacuum on absorptive optical bistability (AOB) are calculated using the different relaxation rate approximation for in-quadrature and in-phase components of a two-level system developed by Gardiner. An expression for the complex absorption coefficient is developed, and the result applied to the AOB equation for the unidirectional ring cavity. We find a significant degradation of bistability for values of the in-quadrature decay constant less than or equal to approximately.5 of the in-phase decay constant. Effects of detuning and relative phase of the pump field to the squeezed vacuum field are also examined.
