Abstract
Two patterns of synchronization in networks of semiconductor lasers (SLs) induced by symmetries of inherent network topology are presented. One type is termed isolated desynchronization, in which one or more clusters lose stability while all others remain synchronized. Another type is intertwined synchronization, in which some clusters always achieve and lose their synchrony at the same time. The existence of these special synchronization patterns and their relationship with the topology of network is discussed systemically. The results show that such behaviors exist in different topologies of SL networks. We also discussed the influence of significant parameters of SL networks on the stability of cluster synchronization. It is shown that the network dynamics is sensitive to the two key internal parameters of SLs, the linewidth-enhancement factor, and gain saturation coefficient. Our work is very beneficial to the implementation of secure communication and synchronization networks based on SLs.
