Stabilization of chaotic intensity fluctuations of intracavity frequency-doubled solid-state (Nd: YAG) lasers using multiple-delay feedback control (MDFC) is demonstrated by numerical simulations. It is shown that MDFC not only provides stable (cw) output for constant pump rates but also works with slowly varying pump currents, resulting in corresponding (nonchaotic) intensity modulations.
