Chaotic Mode-locking of Chirped-pulse Oscillators

Abstract

Chaotic mode-locking of chirped-pulse oscillator has been analyzed on the basis of generalized nonlinear cubic-quintic complex Ginzburg-Landau equation. It has been shown, that the chirped solitary pulse can be stabilized against the vacuum excitation, if the fourth-order dispersion is nonzero and positive. However, the pulse evolves chaotically, if the dispersion reaches some threshold value.
