Abstract

We present a new optoelectronic architecture intended for chaotic optical intensity generation. The principle relies on an electro-optic nonlinear delay dynamics, where the nonlinearity originates from an integrated four-wave optical interferometer, involving two independent electro-optic modulation inputs. Consequently, the setup involves both two-dimensional nonlinearity and dual-delay feedback dynamics, which results in enhanced chaos complexity of particular interest in chaos encryption schemes. The generated chaos observed with large feedback gains has a bandwidth ranging from 30 kHz to 13 GHz and is confirmed by numerical simulations of the proposed dynamical model and bifurcation diagram calculation.
