Paper Abstract

We numerically study the message filtering characteristics of semiconductor laser as a receiver in optical chaos communication. The transmitter is an external-cavity laser subjecting to optical feedback that operates in a chaotic regime. The receiver can operate at a chaotic regime either similar to the transmitter (closed-loop scheme) or without optical feedback (open-loop scheme). We study the effects of frequency detuning and parameters mismatch between transmitter and receiver on quality of the recovered signal in both open and closed loop schemes. We find that the closed-loop scheme has, in general, a higher quality of recovered signal compared with the open-loop. We also study the effects of message frequency on quality of the recovered signal in the two types of schemes. The results demonstrate that the filtering effect of semiconductor laser receiver is larger for low frequency message and decreases as the message frequency approaches the relaxation oscillation frequency of semiconductor laser. The SNR of the recovered signal of the open-loop scheme remains higher than that of the closed-loop scheme when the message frequency is in high frequency region.
