An experimental system is proposed for a compound-cavity laser diode which can adaptively select a dominant lasing mode. Chaotic mode-hoppings and multistability of dominant mode are verified in the system. An chaotic search algorithm is used to adaptively select a dominant lasing mode by switching a control parameter between multistability and chaotic mode-hopping states. Chaotic dynamics of mode- hoppings are also analyzed in both experiments and numerical simulations and the results show that the distribution of dominant mode residence time differs significantly from that of noise-induced mode-hoppings.
