Abstract
A short introduction to instabilities in optically pumped systems is given. We have put emphasis on homogeneously broadened media. Main results on line competition and stability analyses of single-mode operation are reviewed and compared to experiments. The conditions for Lorenz chaos in cw optically pumped far-infrared (FIR) lasers are formulated. They are more stringent than those derived in two level systems because of the pump laser induced coherence.
