Paper Abstract

A semiconductor laser subject to phase-conjugate optical feedback can be described by rate equations, which are mathematically delay differential equations (DDEs) with an infinite-dimensional phase space. We employ new numerical continuation techniques for DDEs to study the exact nature of the locking region in the parameter plane given by the feedback strength and the pump current. This reveals interesting dynamics, including heteroclinic bifurcations, near the locking region, leading to different scenarios of possible transitions into and out of locking. We show how several special points act as organizing centers for the dynamics.
