Several novel implementations of optical bistability have been proposed and analyzed. Novel applications of optical nonlinearities in a ring have been proposed particularly interesting is the use of nonlinear nonreciprocity of counterpropagating waves in a ring to enahnce the Sagnac Effect, and, thereby, increase the sensitivity of a passive ring optical gyro. The use of moderate energy electron beams traversing superlattices to generate coherent x-rays by the coherent addition of transition radiation has also been proposed and analyzed. This document is a collection of articles pertaining to such fields as Solitons Cyclotron resonance of free electrons High energy electron beams. Author
