We report on the experimental open-loop control of generalized multistability in a system with coexisting attractors. The experimental system is an erbium-doped fiber laser with pump modulation of the diode laser. We demonstrate that additional weak harmonic modulation of the diode current annihilates one or two stable limit cycles in the laser. The ability of the method to select a desired state is illustrated through a codimension-two bifurcation diagram in the parameter space of the… CONTINUE READING
