Abstract

It is shown theoretically that synchronization between two chaotic self-pulsating laser diodes can be achieved by use of optical feedback levels of a few percent. The sensitivity of the synchronization to parameter changes is examined. A synchronization scheme that utilizes self-pulsating compact disc laser diodes could produce low-cost stand-alone transmitters and receivers for private communication systems.
