Abstract

We present experimental observations of chaotic phase synchronization of a sinusoidally modulated frequency-doubled Nd:YAG laser. Periodic and chaotic phase synchronization is detected using recurrence analysis and pseudo ensemble averaging applied to the observed intensity fluctuations and the modulated pump current.
