Abstract

A multi-channel wideband chaotic signal generation scheme is proposed and numerically investigated based on a slave multi-transverse mode vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser (SL) subject to chaotic optical injection from a master multi-transverse mode vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser (ML) with optical feedback. Taking two low-order transverse modes, LP01 and LP11, as an example for numerical calculations, the simulated results show that under suitable optical feedback both the LP01 and LP11 modes (two-channel) of a ML can be driven into the chaotic states where their bandwidths are relatively narrow at a level about 8 GHz. Further injecting the two chaotic signals into a SL, for the case of the globally chaotic optical injection, the SL can output two-channel chaotic signals with wide bandwidths above 20 GHz under appropriate operation parameters. Moreover, the case of SL with mode-selective chaotic optical injection is also analyzed.
