    The role of exciton-exciton, exciton-biexciton, and biexciton-biexciton interactions in the nonlinear transmission function of a ring cavity is studied. It is shown that transmission functions both without hysteresis and with one or two hysteresis loops can be obtained by taking into account the...

    The observation of photorefractive two-wave mixing bistability without external feedback is reported. Hysteresis with an on/off contrast ratio of 30 was obtained through the interaction of two 514.5 nm laser beams within a Fe: KNbO3 crystal. A signal beam modulation rate less than 25 mHz was...

    The spin transitions in Li[Fe(Th-5Cl-Sa)2] were studied by EPR under hydrostatic pressure in the temperature range 80-332 K. The structural changes in the complex anion induced by the pressure above 350 MPa (when LS-2 phase appears) are observed, which are manifested in abrupt changes in gË”...
