AbstractResults of measurements of optical bistability in a guest — host polymer structure are presented. A new type of polymer has been elaborated and its optical properties are described. The Fabry-Perot system has been used and the bistabile behaviour has been observed. The second order cascaded χ(2)(ω): χ(2)(2ω) process, leading to intensity dependent phase shift, has been suggested as the mechanism leading to this effect. A satisfactory model of this phenomenon was formulated.
