Abstract
We investigate theoretically the synchronization properties of the polarization chaos dynamics generated by a free-running vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser (VCSEL). Here, we focus on a one-way master-slave configuration - or unidirectional coupling - with two chaotic VCSELs. The spin-flip model is used to model the two devices and derived to account for the coupling between them. We demonstrate that the chaotic dynamics generated by the two lasers can indeed synchronize in the proposed configuration. The synchronization appears to be of high quality as we obtain a high-level of similarity between the emission characteristics of the master and slave laser dynamics.
