Abstract

We present an overview of our research on the fractal-generating properties of two distinct optical cavities: fractal eigenmodes of linear systems with inherent magnification, and spontaneous spatial fractals in nonlinear systems. Our latest research focuses on “kaleidoscope” lasers and nonlinear ring-resonator geometries.
