Paper Abstract

The chaotic dynamics of a semiconductor laser subject to a delayed polarization-rotated optical feedback is investigated theoretically and experimentally. An extension of the usual one-polarization model is derived to account for two orthogonal polarizations of the optical field. The two-polarization model is motivated by observations of lag synchronization in our experiments using polarization-rotated optical feedback and uni-directional injection. Experimental data confirm the predictions of the two-field model. We also show that the two-polarization model can be reduced to the one-polarization model.
