Paper Abstract

The experimental investigations of the behavior of an internally modulated CO2 laser reveals new chaotic features. In addition to the period-doubling transition to chaos, it has been shown to present (i) generalized bistability between different attractors when the laser cavity is sufficiently detuned from the molecular resonance and (ii) crises when its most usual strange attractor collides with an unstable state. This laser is also a good prototype to study experimentally the influence of noise on bifurcations. A simple model of this system proves useful to understand the dependence of the bifurcation diagram on different parameters.
