We propose a secure communication scheme based on anticipating synchronization of two chaotic laser diodes, one subject to incoherent optical feedback and the other to incoherent optical injection. This scheme does not require fine tuning of the optical frequencies of both lasers as is the case for other schemes based on chaotic laser diodes subject to(More)
We investigate the dynamical behavior of two laser diodes coupled through mutual injection of their optical fields when placed face to face with a small separation between them. We report symmetry breaking in periodic solutions at low coupling rates. In addition, we demonstrate that at higher coupling rates both lasers exhibit very fast periodic(More)
We study numerically two distant unidirectionally coupled single-mode semiconductor lasers subject to coherent optical feedback. We show that two fundamentally different types of chaotic synchronization can occur depending on the strengths of the coupling and of the feedback of the receiver laser.
Experiments have yielded polarization self-modulation in vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers (VCSELs) subject to a pi/2 polarization-rotating optical feedback. The phenomenon has been simulated numerically, but its bifurcation has never been explained. We show that polarization self-modulation results from a Hopf bifurcation mechanism that can be(More)
We investigate correlations of the intensity fluctuations of two-dimensional arrays of nonidentical, locally coupled lasers, numerically and experimentally. We find evidence of a power-law dependence of spatial correlations as a function of laser pair distance (or coupling strength) near the phase-locking threshold.
We study experimentally and numerically a multimode semiconductor laser subject to optical feedback and operating in the low-frequency fluctuation regime. We show that the low-frequency dropouts in the main modes are accompanied by sudden, asymetric, activations of dormant longitudinal side-modes. These activations are delayed with respect to the dropouts(More)
We demonstrate numerically that low-frequency fluctuations (LFF's) observed in a laser diode subjected to a first optical feedback with a short delay are suppressed by means of an adequate second optical feedback. The general idea of this technique is based on the observation that second feedback can suppress the antimodes that are responsible for the(More)
We propose a synchronization scheme using a chaotic semiconductor laser with phase-conjugate feedback. We study numerically the robustness of the synchronization and we show that it is possible to transmit secretly a message with the chaotic modulation technique.
We demonstrate experimentally all-optical stabilization of a single-mode laser diode subject to external optical feedback operating in the low-frequency fluctuations (LFF) regime, by the technique of applying a second delayed optical feedback. We interpret our results as suppression of LFF through destruction of the antimodes responsible for the LFF crises(More)
