The effect of a squeezed vacuum input on the bistable behavior of a ring cavity with three level atoms in Λ configuration is investigated. It is shown that the squeezed vacuum input significantly increases the range of the optical bistability. The optical bistability can be controlled by the appropriate squeezed vacuum input.
