The authors propose simpler coupled laser arrays employing class-A lasers, such as dye and gas lasers, in which both polarization and population dynamics can be adiabatically eliminated. Chaotic behavior is investigated on the basis of numerical analysis, paying special attention to the interplay between coexisting attractors.
