Dynamics of Two-Photon Process in Ring Cavity
S.M.A. Maize and G. Ibrahim

The dynamics of an optical system consisting of two-photon absorber placed inside a ring cavity is studied theoretically. For this purpose the principles of bifurcation theory coupled with continuation technique is employed. The benefit of the applied method is that it helps in exploring the system under investigation. The effect of system parameters such as the cooperation parameter, the atomic and cavity detuning parameters on the dynamics of the system is given. Moreover, the role of the Stark shift which a crucial parameter in the two-photon problem is clarified. For simplicity, the mean field limit approximation is considered in solving the present problem.
