Abstract

We investigate the influence of vectorial degrees of freedom on stationary and dynamic behavior of the amplitude-polarization parameters of vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers. It is demonstrated that these lasers can exhibit complex dynamics, including fully developed amplitude-polarization chaos, even when a single polarization pattern is excited. The appearance of chaotic dynamics is attributed to the vectorial mechanism of destabilization, which can act on the dynamics independently of the conventional scalar mechanism. This property provides background for new measurement methods.
