It is shown theoretically that the directly modulated laser diode, with the modulation frequency of its injection current comparable to the relaxation oscillation frequency, exhibits period doubling route to chaos as the modulation index of current is increased. The effect of spontaneous emission factor on the chaotic behavior in the laser diode is also studied.
