Abstract

We show that the behaviour of semiconductor lasers with opto-electronic feedback can be understood by analysing the limit of negligible atomic losses. The two most important families of periodic orbits are analytically predicted and numerically investigated. Finally, the effect of finite losses on the period of the orbits is studied in a first-order approximation.
