Abstract

We investigate the dynamics of a semiconductor laser subject to coherent, delayed filtered optical feedback. This system produces multi-stable continuous wave, relaxation and pure frequency oscillations. We show that the feedback phase is a key quantity for controlling this dynamical complexity. A systematic analysis with the feedback phase as one bifurcation parameter reveals the system's overall dynamical structure.
