Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The possibility of achieving chaotic syncronization using self-pulsating semiconductor lasers such as CD laser diodes is demonstrated. Chaotic dynamics are introduced by modulation of the laser's drive current. The intrinsic nature of the chaos allows the use of a simple low-cost stand-alone device to effect chaotic data encryption.
