Paper Abstract

The dynamical behavior of a Raman ring laser is examined under conditions of pump depletion. In the plane-wave and adiabatic limits, a mapping is obtained for two complex field amplitudes. Chaos is observed when injected pump and Stokes frequencies are detuned from a Raman resonance. Hyperchaos, characterized by two positive Liapunov exponents, is found when in addition the two injected fields are of comparable magnitudes.
