    Numerical studies of the dynamic transfer of one chaotic oscillation appeared in a laser diode, which is subject to weak optical feedback, to a variety of periodic oscillations by modulating the injection current of the laser diode, are described. We evaluate also the response of periodic attractors in the stabilized oscillations by calculating statistic distributions of the transient time among those attractors. The average transient time is approximately 21 ns, which is longer than the full round time in the controlled periodic attractors.
