Paper Abstract

A model describing the dynamics of an irradiated SF6 molecule was previously shown to yield chaotic trajectories. We have found that neutrally stable oscillatory states are also possible within windows of the parameter space. When dissipation is added to the model, we have found bistability, both between fixed points and limit cycles, and between limit cycles and other limit cycles. By dynamically varying the laser detuning, we have proven that hysteresis cycles result.
