Paper Abstract

Winner-takes-all dynamical behavior of transverse structure in a large aperture dye laser with intracavity saturable absorber on bacteriorhodopsin controlled by bleaching and coloring external beams is demonstrated both theoretically and experimentally. As a result of mode competitive interactions in the multistable dye laser the strongest component of multimode structure incoherently initiated by uniform external bleaching beam suppresses the rest modes and the final stage of transverse structure evolution is the single-mode regime of operation.
