Paper Abstract

An erbium-doped fiber laser is shown to operate as a bistable or multistable nonlinear system under harmonic modulation of the diode pump laser. Phase- and frequency-dependent states are demonstrated both experimentally and in numerical simulations through codimensional-one and codimensional-two bifurcation diagrams in the parameter space of the modulation frequency and amplitude. In particular, generalized bistability results in doubling of saddle-node bifurcation lines where different coexisting attractors born. The laser model describes well all experimental features.
