Paper Abstract

In this work we have studied the nonlinear behavior of direct semiconductor lasers, based in the rate equation description of the laser. We have dedicated special attention to the influence of the nonlinear gain compression, which has served in recent studies to include many new effects affecting carriers and photons. We have studied its effect in the onset of nonlinear behavior, in particular, in the first period doubling bifurcation. Also, the nonlinear route to chaos is studied, finding for the first time numerically a route to chaos previously observed experimentally.
