Synchronization of the chaotic intensity fluctuations of three modulated Nd:YAG lasers oriented in a linear array with either a modulated pump or loss is investigated experimentally, numerically, and analytically. Experimentally, synchronization is only seen between the two outer lasers, with little synchrony between outer and inner lasers. Using a false… CONTINUE READING
