Abstract

A fully nonlinear dynamical treatment of lasing in a fully chaotic cavity was shown to give single-mode oscillation of a spatially chaotic wave function. For the cavity shape, Bunimovich's stadium was chosen, and for the laser model, the Schrödinger-Bloch model was employed. Furthermore, it was illustrated that the spatially chaotic wave function of the stationary lasing oscillation excellently corresponds to the quasistationary state of the resonance obtained by an extended boundary element method.
