Abstract

Using mutually coupled nonidentical continuous-wave Nd:YAG lasers, we experimentally confirmed the recently proposed transition route from phase synchronization to complete synchronization. As evidence of this transition we obtained the probability distribution of the intermittent synchronization time near the threshold of the complete synchronization transition.
