Abstract

We report observation of bifurcations, higher harmonics, and chaos in an all-optical quantum system. These phenomena occur in a passive Fabry-Perot resonator, in association with deep and sustained Ikeda modulation of smooth input pulses. Results are in excellent agreement with our adaptation of optical bistability theory to the time-dependent regime. © 1984 The American Physical Society.
