Paper Abstract

We show both numerically and experimentally that a semiconductor laser prepared in an excitable state and driven by two weak periodic signals with different frequencies is able to resonate at a ghost frequency, i.e., a frequency that is not present in the forcing signal. The small signal modulation together with the complex internal dynamics of the system produces this resonance. This is an eminently nonlinear effect that agrees with the recent theoretical predictions by Chialvo et. al. [PHys. Rec. E. 65, 050902(R),2002].
