Résumé
La théorie de la bistabilité dans un fabry-Pérot de type Kerr est reprise dans le cas d'illumination en ondes planes de polarisation TE, et à incidence normale. Ensuite, nous proposons une nouvelle technique de simulation basée sur la méthode dite « Beam Propagation Method ». Les premiers résultats de cette simulation sont prétés.


Abstract
The classical description of optical bistability behaviour of a nonlinear Kerr-type Fabry-Pérot etalon is given for normal incidence in the case of TE-plane waves. Thereafter, we propose a new simulation method of the fabry-Pérot based on the so-called « Beam Propagation Method ». First numerical results are reported.
