Stable route-tracking synchronization is experimentally demonstrated in two semiconductor lasers with delayed optoelectronic feedback. When the two lasers are stably synchronized, the receiver laser is observed to track the route to chaotic pulsing of the transmitter laser. The stability of the route-tracking synchronization is examined by calculation of the transverse Lyapunov exponents of the coupled system.
