Optical implementation of a backpropagating neuron by means of a nonlinear Fabry-Perot etalon requires thresholding a forward signal beam while the transmittance of a backpropagating beam is multiplied by the differential of the forward signal. This is achievable by inputting a bichromatic field to a three-level system in an optical cavity. The response characteristics of this device have the added possibility of adaptability of the threshold by the backward probe input intensity.
