Abstract

We show that two linearly polarized counterpropagating waves in a Kerr nonlinear medium with linear dispersion can exhibit multimode temporal instability. We find the boundary of the unstable regime and demonstrate that the fully developed instability results in self-sustained oscillations and the onset of chaos.
