Paper Abstract

We investigate the synchronization properties of two mutually-coupled semiconductor lasers (SL) in a face to face configuration, when a non-negligible injection delay time is taken into account. Under the appropriate conditions, we derive a thermodynamic potential analog to the one studied by Mork et al. and by Lenstra for a semiconductor laser subject to an optical feedback. In this context, the role that noise and detuning play in the dynamics of the system is clearly identified. When operating in the Low Frequency Fluctuations (LFF) regime, the effect of the detuning on the leader-laggard operation is also analyzed. Finally, we focus on the short intercavity regime and we study the influence of the detuning and the propagation phase on the dynamics of each laser.
