Paper Abstract

Collective self-organization effects and chaos are commonly observed in optics. We describe examples in a particular kind of nonlinear optical material: photorefractive crystals. In particular, we show different effects that arise when photorefractive crystals are illuminated by one laser beam, two laser beams, and three laser beams.
