Abstract
The dynamics of an optically pumped single mode laser with pump and laser fields with either parallel or crossed linear polarizations and a homogeneously broadened four-level medium is theoretically investigated in detail. Numerical simulations reveal dramatically different dynamic behaviors for these two polarization configurations. The analysis of the model equations allows us to find the physical origin of both behaviors. In particular, the Lorenz-type dynamics exhibited by the orthogonal configuration arises from the lack of coherent effects in spite of the optical pumping.
