Bridging the gap between laser physics and applied mathematics, this book offers a new perspective on laser dynamics. Combining fresh treatments of classic problems with up-to-date research, asymptotic techniques appropriate for nonlinear dynamical systems are shown to offer a powerful alternative to numerical simulations. The combined analytical and experimental description of dynamical instabilities provides a clear derivation of physical formulae and an evaluation of their significance. Starting with the observation of different time scales of an operating laser, the book develops approximation techniques to systematically explore their effects. Laser dynamical regimes are introduced at different levels of complexity, from standard turn-on experiments to stiff, chaotic, spontaneous or driven pulsations. Particular attention is given to quantitative comparisons between experiments and theory. The book broadens the range of analytical tools available to laser physicists and provides applied mathematicians with problems of practical interest, making it invaluable for graduate students and researchers.

A distinctive discussion of the nonlinear dynamical phenomena of semiconductor lasers. The book combines recent results of quantum dot laser modeling with mathematical details and an analytic understanding of nonlinear phenomena in semiconductor lasers and points out possible applications of lasers in cryptography and chaos control. This interdisciplinary approach makes it a unique and powerful source of knowledge for anyone intending to contribute to this field of research. By presenting both experimental and theoretical results, the distinguished authors consider solitary lasers with nano-structured material, as well as integrated devices with complex feedback sections. In so doing, they address such topics as the bifurcation theory of systems with time delay, analysis of chaotic dynamics, and the modeling of quantum transport. They also address chaos-based cryptography as an example of the technical application of highly nonlinear laser systems.

The book explores the current state of laser dynamics and provides reference data and basic experimental facts for old- and new-generation lasers. The most frequently used mathematical models are presented. The author discusses the reasons for the spontaneous occurrence of pulsation of the intensity of radiation of solid-state lasers and the influence of the non-stationary nature of laser elements on lasing characteristics. Special emphasis is placed on the problems of the low-frequency dynamics of multimode lasers. This book is aimed at experts in the fields of quantum electronics and laser physics.

This monograph summarizes major achievements in laser dynamics over the past three decades. The book begins with two introductory Chapters. Chapter 1 offers general considerations on quantum oscillators, formulates the requirements for the laser key elements and shows how these requirements are met in different laser systems. The second Chapter proposes the mathematical models used in semiclassical laser theory, discusses the approximations and simplifications in particular cases, and specifies the range of applicability of these models. In Chapters 3-5 attention is given primarily to the steady states and their stability, the laser behavior in the instability domain, the characteristics of regular and chaotic pulsations and the nature of their mechanisms. Chapter 6 deals with the processes in a laser, accompanying the time variance of laser parameters. Considerable attention is given to a laser response to weak, low-frequency modulation of the parameters. The problems addressed therein are resonant modulation enhancement, transition to the nonlinear regime, chaotic response to periodic impact, spike-like generation due to variation of the cavity geometry and a laser rod temperature drift. Laser behavior is subject to qualitative changes if its optical elements exhibit nonlinear properties. The action of a saturable absorber, which leads to a loss of laser stability and provides passive Q-modulation, is investigated. To a much lesser degree the researchers' attention has been attracted by other nonlinear effects such as self-focusing, e.g., which may have a strong influence on laser dynamics. All of these issues are covered in Chapter 7. The book is intended for researchers, engineers, graduate and post-graduate students majoring in quantum electronics.

This book is the first collection of tutorials on nonlinear dynamics of lasers. The International Spring School on Fundamental Issues of Nonlinear Laser Dynamics was aimed at young researchers who are interested in working at the forefront of applied nonlinear mathematics and nonlinear laser dynamics. In a highly interdisciplinary spirit, there were tutorial presentations from 14 internationally recognized top experts from applied mathematics, theoretical and experimental physics, and engineering disciplines. Topics included are: bifurcation theory, the notion of chaos, multiple time scale systems, and delay equations. The dynamics of lasers with optical injection and optical feedback, and lasers with spatio-temporal dynamics are discussed from the theoretical, experimental, and device simulation points of view. Applications of lasers include secure communications, pulse generation and telecommunication through optical fibers. This mixture of introductory material will benefit an inderdisciplinary readership of researchers, lecturers and students in the fields of applied mathematics, physics, and electrical engineering.
