Abstract

We have generated TEM*0,l modes in an end-pumped microchip laser using a standard fiber-coupled diode. A rich set of dynamic behaviours, such as periodic and quasi-periodic self-modulation, chaotic pulsing and frequency locking was observed in the generated TEM*0,l modes. Experimental results confirm the theoretical predictions that the locking occurs as a subcritical bifurcation and that a region of coexisting locked and unlocked states exists.
