ABSTRACT A novel photonic monolithic integrated device consisting of a distributed feedback laser, a passive resonator, and active elements that control the optical feedback properties has been designed, fabricated, and evaluated as a compact potential chaotic emitter in optical communications. Under diverse operating parameters, the device behaves in different modes providing stable solutions, periodic states, and broadband chaotic dynamics. Chaos data analysis is performed in order to quantify the complexity and chaoticity of the experimental reconstructed attractors by applying nonlinear noise filtering.
