The role of phase dynamics in laser systems is investigated. A detailed analysis of a bidirec-tional ring laser shows that, besides a trivial shift of the average frequency, a diffusion originated by the chaotic motion can be detected. In this case, even if the evolution of the average phase is removed by a suitable change of reference, the fractal… (More)
