Abstract

We numerically demonstrate multiplexing and demultiplexing of two distinct chaotic optical signals with strongly overlapped spectra, which are generated by mutually coupled external-cavity semiconductor lasers. Demultiplexing is performed by complete chaos synchronization, while the lasers at the receiving end are optically injected with the same multiplexed signal that couples the emitters together. Such a configuration could lead to spectrally efficient chaos-based optical encryption and decryption of multiple data streams.
