Abstract

Laser action on a single spatially chaotic wave function is obtained as a final stable state in a nonlinear dynamical model of a stadium shaped resonant cavity with an active medium. The stable single-mode lasing state corresponds to a particular metastable resonance of the cavity which wins a competition among multiple modes with positive net linear gain and has a distinct lasing threshold.
