The quantum-mechanical theory of optical bistability developed in an earlier paper is generalized to calculate the absorption spectrum (gain coefficient) of an optically bistable system in the presence of a weak probe field. The behavior of the gain coefficient on the cooperative branch and the single-atom branch is analyzed in detail.
