Abstract

The time-dependent solutions of the mean-field Maxwell-Bloch equations for optical bistability are studied numerically for the deterministic equations and the stochastic equations with additional noise sources. From the solutions of the deterministic equations, a discrete map is constructed showing that the periodic and chaotic solutions form a Feigenbaum scenarium. Inclusion of noise sources leads to a finite lifetime of the states in the upper bistable branch and to destabilization of higher periodic solutions.
