Abstract:

Transient behavior in optical bistability mediated by phonon mode and virtual exciton coupling is studied for an electron-phonon coupling system such as polydiacetylene-toluene-sulfonate. Numerical calculations are used to analyze the evolution between bistable states, and novel switching behavior and Rabi oscillations are found.
