Abstract

We investigate the bifurcation diagram of a laser with saturable absorber in the low and medium intensity regimes. The linear stability of the stationary solutions corresponding to these regimes is studied. In the low intensity domain, a Hopf bifurcation point is determined from which a time-periodic solution emerges. This solution is contructed and its stability is analyzed in the vicinity of the bifurcation point. It is shown that this time-periodic solution is stable in a finite domain of the parameter space.
