Paper Abstract

Results of theoretical consideration of the multistable states and instabilities in the two-channel laser with a saturable absorber in the presence of additional optical feedback between channels are proposed. Various steady states with regular pulsations or cw radiation in one or in both channels, or oscillations of the type two-, three- or some other multiple periods are demonstrated, both pulsations with breaking of regularity. Action of additional feedback on the multistability, instabilities, and laser dynamics is analyzed.
