Modulation Instability is known as intrinsic property of a nonlinear medium like Kerr medium or photorefractive medium; through the such media, the system behavior is possible to transit form stationary regime to chaotic regime; this paper deals with Modulation Instability (MI) in a nonlinear medium and investigates the analogy of MI of optical nonlinear medium and the consequent chaotic regime based on extracting Lyapunov exponent through the power spectrum and equivalently intensity-time diagram of MI; the experimental observation truly confirms the results of MI as the route to the chaotic regime.
