Abstract

We numerically studied statistics of the transient response time when switching between periodic attractors obtained through chaos control with a high-frequency injection method in a laser diode that is subject to optical feedback. Each transient response time significantly depends on its position in the starting attractor, whereas the statistical distributions of the response times for many transients are determined almost entirely by the final attractor. The average transient response time is 40 times larger than the round time in the controlled periodic attractors. The transient response time is also strongly affected by the external cavity length. The shortest average transient response time is obtained at a minimum external cavity length and a zero phase difference between the laser field and the feedback light field.
