We study the time series of the output intensity of a Raman fiber laser with an ordinal patterns analysis in the laminar-turbulent transition. We look for signatures among consecutive events that indicate when the system changes from triggering low-intensity to high-intensity events. We set two thresholds, a low one and a high one, to distinguish between low intensity versus high-intensity events. We find that when the time series is performing low-intensity events (below the low threshold), it shows some preferred temporal patterns before triggering high-intensity events (above a high threshold). The preferred temporal patterns remain the same all through the pump current range studied, even though two clearly different dynamical regimes are covered (laminar regime for low pump currents and turbulent regime for high pump currents). We also find that the turbulent regime shows clearer signatures of determinism than the laminar regime.
