Paper Abstract

The multimode instability commonly observed in erbium-doped fiber lasers in shown through systematic experiments to be of the Risken-Nummedal-Graham-Haken instability type. The onset of instability occurs with a well-defined threshold which scales with cavity loss in the expected way. Before, this type of laser instability has eluded experimental demonstration for 30 years.
