Abstract

We examine the dynamics of a ring cavity containing a diffusive, monostable induced absorber. We find both temporal and spatial chaos over a range of input intensities and diffusion-length to spot-size ratios. The diffusive coupling enforces spatial correlations over a range of many diffusion lengths.
