Chaotic Dynamics Due to Competition Among Degenerate Modes in a Ring-Cavity Laser
Competition between two degenerate spatial modes in a ring-cavity laser is shown to lead to chaotic time-evolution of their amplitudes. Analysis of this temporal chaos implies that the laser output will show randomly intermittent bursts of apparent spatial complexity due to interference between the two competing modes.
