Abstract

Chaos synchronization and pairwise bidirectional communication with coupling time delay signature (CTDS) concealment in a global heterogeneous coupled semiconductor laser (SL) network are achieved by introducing identical chaotic injections from an external SL with self-feedback. The properties of chaos synchronization and CTDSs in four indicative cases are comparatively discussed. Moreover, the influences of key parameters on the quality of chaos synchronization and the CTDS characteristics are thoroughly investigated. On the basis of the chaos synchronization, the chaotic communication performance is further analyzed. The numerical results demonstrate that with the joint contributions of heterogeneous couplings and external identical chaotic injections, isochronous chaos synchronization can be achieved between two arbitrary SLs, and simultaneously the CTDSs are suppressed to a distinguishable level close to zero, over a wide parameter range. Besides, bidirectional transmission with a bit rate beyond 6 Gbit/s can be achieved between the synchronized SLs. Comparing with the conventional two-user communication system, the proposed SL network with CTDS concealment supports flexible network-type message exchanges between pairwise SLs.
