Abstract

The authors study the regime of self-pulsations in a two-state quantum dot laser with saturable absorber. Experiments demonstrate and theory explains the appearance of self-pulsations at low relaxation oscillation frequency. The system exhibits a period doubling sequence of bifurcations leading to chaos.
