Phase Synchronization of Spiking Oscillations in Multimode Solid State Lasers.
E.V. Grigorieva

Poincare maps are analytically derived to describe antiphase spiking oscillations in class B multimode lasers. On the base of such maps, a hierarchy of periodic solutions of various structures is demonstrated. Analytical conditions are determined for phase synchronization and clustering of spikes associated with different longitudinal laser modes. Bifurcations leading to switching between the solutions are described.
Key words: lasers, coupled oscillators, synchronization, asymptotic analysis
