Paper Abstract

We present recent results obtained for an optical chaos communications system using optoelectronic devices. These devices are used to improve privacy and security in information transmission. Two kind of chaos based emitters and receivers are described: a semiconductor laser subject to all-optical feedback and operating in a non-linear regime and a semiconductor laser subject to non-linear electro-optical feedback and operating in a linear regime. We show that both configuration give very good synchronization properties and are suitable for message enconding/decoding at bit rates as high as Gbit/s.
