Abstract

Summary form only given. We present a numerical study of the nonlinear dynamics of a population of coupled semiconductor lasers with saturable absorber operating in the excitable regime [1] and described by a set of coupled Yamada models [2]. In particular we have investigated the self-organized synchronization process taking place spontaneously among the lasers, showing significant correlations between the spike-like pulses emitted by different lasers. Our findings demonstrate that synchronization in time and also in intensity occurs in a large region of the parameter space and for different population sizes and furthermore it is robust with respect to random distribution of the lasers' pump parameter which is linked to the excitability threshold
