Abstract
Amplitude instabilities near the threshold of phase locking are investigate d in a system of two coupled Nd:YVO4 microchip lasers. The compact semimono lithic resonator setup allows a systematic study of the relevant parameter regime, including the observation of synchronous amplitude oscillations and , for the first time in coupled solid-state lasers, localized synchronizati on, The measurements are compared with numerical simulations.
