Abstract

We investigate the possibility of concealing the time-delay signatures in semiconductor ring lasers (SRLs) with external feedback. Through the autocorrelation and delayed mutual information, we report different scenarios leading to simultaneous time-delay concealment both in the intensity and the phase dynamics of such systems. In particular, the fact that such delay signatures can be eliminated in a SRL subject to short feedback constitutes a step toward the possibility of implementing secure communication schemes and random number generators on chip.
