Abstract
We have studied the dynamical behaviour of two semiconductor lasers subject to an optoelectronic bidirectional coupling and optionally to feedback, considering non-zero delay times in the propagation of the signals between both lasers and through each feedback loop in the case the latter exists. Starting from delayed rate equations for the photon and carrier densities, we have investigated the stability of the fixed points and limit cycles of the system as function of the coupling and feedback strengths, as well as the delay times. From this analysis, quasiperiodic route to chaos and several interesting phenomena like the recently discovered "death by delay" are predicted for this system.
