Inestabilitats i caos en sistemes òptics passius

Project Details


This project is devoted to the study of the dynamic of two different kind of passive optical systems, in which spatial propagation effects play a fundamental role. The systems are: a) optothermal bistable cavities with localized absorption and multilayer spacers; such dynamical systems have effective dimension determined by the number of layers in the spacer and they seem particularly suitable for studying homoclinic phenomena and specially the Shil'nikov chaos; b) self-induced cavities in saturable absorbers; we study the dynamical evolution of the reflectivity of a system in which a self-reflected wave has been generated. It is a complex dynamic because of the generating position's dependance on intensity.
