Abstract

It is shown that positive pulse switching is possible in a system of two coupled nonlinear Fabry-Perot cavities. The conditions in which a signal beam can be switched on and off by positive pulses in the steady state regime are described for cavities filled with Kerr media having a long diffusion length.
