Synchronization of high-frequency chaotic optical pulses is demonstrated in two semiconductor lasers with delayed optoelectronic feedback. The difference between synchronization and modulation is discussed. Evidence is presented to show that true synchronization, rather than modulation or amplification, is accomplished in our optoelectronic feedback system.
