Abstract

We report the first experimental observation to our knowledge of a dynamic transition from modelike patterns to completely disordered patterns in a large-aspect-ratio Nd:YAG laser. Recordings of near-field patterns with an integration time as small as 1ns allow us to follow the evolution of the transverse intensity profile along the output pulse of the laser.
