Abstract
Kerr lens Ti:Sapphire lasers are known to display several modes of operation, depending on the values taken by the system's parameters. The basic observed modes of operation are: continuous wave, mode-locking with transform limited pulses, and mode locking with chirped pulses. A description based on an iterative or Poincare map of five pulses variables is developed to obtain the values of laser variables as well as their stability. In spite of the great simplifications involved in this approach, some predicted behaviors of the system, as multi stability between modes, are in good agreement with the experimental observations.
