We show that optical turbulence and extreme events can exist in the transverse dynamics of a cavity containing molecules of triple quantum dots under conditions close to tunneling-induced transparency. These nanostructure, when coupled via tunneling, form a four-level configuration with tunable energy-level separations.We show that such a system exhibits multistability and bistability of Turing structures in instability domains with different critical wave vectors. By numerical simulation of the mean-field equation that describes the transverse dynamics of the system, we show that the simultaneous presence of two transverse solutions with opposite nonlinearities gives rise to a series of turbulent structures with the capability of generating two-dimensional rogue waves.
