The roundtrip pulse dynamics of intracavity solid state Raman lasers are theoretically and experimentally studied. A generalized Ikeda map is implemented to predict the coupled-cavity dynamics under cw pumping conditions. Period doubling bifurcations and chaotic instabilities are predicted and compared to experiments.
