The irregular response of a self-pulsing semiconductor laser under direct current modulation has been studied experimentally. The complex evolution of the oscillation waveform as the driving parameters are varied is found to follow a simple rule determined by the ratio of the frequencies of the external modulation and the intrinsic resonance. Good agreement with the predictions of a rate equation model is obtained.
