The dynamic behavior of the phase of the generated field in a Doppler-broadened optically-pumped far-infrared laser is theoretically investigated for the first time. The phase undergoes sudden jumps of approximately π radians, which allow to establish the actual symmetry of the main attractor in the phase space, explaining the heteroclynic character of the chaotic behavior observed in experiments. © 1989.
