Period doubling and deterministic chaos in continuously pumped regenerative amplifiers.


Multi-energy and chaotic pulse energy output from a continuously pumped regenerative amplifier is observed for dumping rates around the inverse upper state lifetime of the gain medium. The relevant regimes of operation are analyzed numerically and experimentally in a diode-pumped Yb:glass regenerative amplifier. The boundaries between stable and unstable pulsing are identified and stability criteria in dependence on the amplifier gate length and pump power are discussed.
