Abstract

Isochrony and time leadership was studied in the synchronized excitable behavior of coupled chaotic diode lasers. Each unit of the system had chaos due to feedback with a fixed delay time. The inter-units coupling signal had a second, independent, characteristic time. Synchronized excitable spikes present isochronous, time leading or time lagging behavior whose stability is shown to depend on a simple relation between the feedback and the coupling times. Experiments on the synchronized low frequency fluctuations of two optically coupled semiconductor lasers and numerical calculations with coupled laser equations verify the predicted stability conditions for synchronization. Synchronism with intermittent time leadership exchange was also observed and characterized.

Segment of experimental time series of the power of (a) laser 1 and (b) laser 2, showing the low frequency synchronism and including the interchange of time delay between the lasers. τF =10 ns and τC =10 ns.

Typical segment of the numerical time series of (a) laser 1 and (b) laser 2 LFF power drops under synchronized condition. Notice that the first drops are isochronous while time leadership was interchanged between drops two and three. τF =10 ns and τC =10.05 ns.

Histograms of the time delays between LFF pulses of the two synchronized lasers with τF =10 ns and τC =10 ns(a) experimental, (b) numerical calculated with no optical detuning and equal parameters and (c) numerical with laser 2 and 1 having currents 1.014 and 1.013 above threshold, respectively.

Histograms from experimental (a) and numerical (b) series for the time delays between LFF drops of the two synchronized lasers: τF =10 ns and τC =15 ns. These delay values do not allow isochrone events, according to Eq. 1

Histograms of the numerical delay times between synchronized LFF drops of the lasers with τF =10 ns and τC =15 ns and showing the effect of asymmetric conditions in the pump currents. In (a). Ji =1.013 for the two lasers and in (b) J 1=1.025 and J 2=1.013, making Laser 1 the time leader.

Fig. 7.

Histograms of the numerical delay times between synchronized LFF drops of the lasers with τF =10 ns and τC =15 ns and Ji =1.013, showing the effect of optical frequency detuning. Above, with Ω/2π=-1 GHz, laser 1 had higher frequency and was time leader in the LFF synchronized drops. Below, the optical frequency was higher for laser 2, which became time leader. See text for explanation on the difference between the two histograms
