Lorenz-Like and Shil'nikov Chaos in Lasers
Neal B. Abraham
Irregular pulsations in many kinds of lasers have been shown to arise from deterministic nonlinear dynamics instead of from stochastic noise. Recently two special cases of chaotic pulsations have been found that differ from the classic routes to chaos of period doubling and quasi-periodicity. These are instead special classes of what has been called the intermittency route to chaos.
