Abstract: In this second talk of the series, I will concentrate on wide aperture semiconductor lasers. The Busse balloon (domain of stable traveling wave solutions) disappears and the laser output is weakly turbulent. The talk will concentrate on describing a control scheme which both stabilizes and steers the laser output.
