Chaotic Behavior in the System

So now we have a value for tex2html_wrap1602 which is close to the relaxation frequency for the number of carriers in the system. So we set this value and we are free to vary tex2html_wrap1603 . We pick a set of initial conditions and set them as constant, namely tex2html_wrap1519 =0.01 and tex2html_wrap1520 =7. We find that when the value for b is around 0.0072-0.0073, we see chaotic behavior in the system. This is interesting since chaos in the laser system can have many interesting applications. Chaos has already been controlled in experiments involving lasers. We hope to be able to apply the ideas of control and synchronization of chaos to this laser system in the future.
