Abstract

Filtered optical feedback (FOF) can be used to stabilize a semiconductor laser but also to generate chaotic laser emission that may find applications in chaos communication schemes. We study theoretically the dynamics of the FOF laser and identify the feedback phase as an important parameter that organizes the huge degree of multi-stability in this system. A systematic experimental study of the phase effect on the dynamics is presented that is supported by theoretical findings
