We have achieved dual synchronization of chaos in two pairs of one-way coupled Nd:YVO4 microchip lasers, using only one transmission channel, by experiment and numerical calculation. We observed the individual synchronization of chaos in each pair of two lasers by adjusting the optical frequencies for injection locking between the corresponding pairs. The achievement of dual synchronization is dependent on the injection-locking condition, which is different from the locking condition for a single pair of lasers because of the presence of an additional injection signal from the master laser of the other pair.
