Paper Abstract

We study the effect of optical injection on the dynamical behavior of a laser whose frequency drifts randomly in time. When the autocorrelation time of these random fluctuations is larger than the ty ical time scales of the system dynamics,and the range of the frequency drift is larger than the injection locking range,the laser exhibits bursting behavior at irregular times,each burst being followed by relaxation oscillations towards the unlocked state. Numerical results from a simple model agree satisfactorily with the experimentally observed behavior of an injected fiber ring laser.
