Abstract

In this paper, we propose a chaos-based scheme allowing for trilateral communication among three mutually coupled chaotic semiconductor lasers. The coupling through a partially transparent optical mirror between two lasers induces the chaotic dynamics. We numerically solve the delay rate equations of three lasers and demonstrate that the dynamics is completely synchronous. Herein, each laser is not only a transmitter but a receiver; three different messages are encoded by simultaneously modulating bias current of the three lasers. By monitoring the synchronization error between transmitter and receiver, and comparing the error with the message of the local laser, we can decipher the message of the sender. The investigation indicates that these messages introduced on the two ends of each link among three lasers can be simultaneously transmitted and restored, so the system can realize simultaneous trilateral communication. In this scheme, an eavesdropper can monitor the synchronization error, but one has no way to obtain the bits that are being sent, so the trilateral communication is secure.
