Abstract

We have successfully demonstrated for the first time dynamical control of the deterministic chaos in a different delay system, that depicts the behavior of an semiconductor laser subject to delayed optical feedback. The system has two distinct features, its is infinite dimensional and its correlation dimension is experimentally tunable. Our method of control consists of a combination of extracting unstable periodic segments of orbits from the chaotic attractor and forming the appropriate map (controlling algorithm) from that knowledge. This approach gives us the power to overcome the problems that arise from the high dimensionality of the system.
