Abstract: An experimental investigation of the performance of an open-loop optical chaotic communication system has been carried out under different optical injection conditions. The most popular message encoding techniques have been considered, tested and compared at gigabit rates and for different levels of optical injection to the receiver, by bit-error-rate (BER) measurements. Different low-pass electrical filters have been implemented for the various message bit-rates tested, in order to employ the most appropriate one for message decoding. The best performance of all the examined encryption methods for messages of 1.5 Gb/s bit-rate emerged for the chaos modulation encryption method and was characterized by Q-factor values up to 5.1, after synchronizing in the strong injection regime, while the corresponding BER of the decoded message was as low as 7/spl middot/10/sup -5/. In order to confirm the secure encryption of the message, BER measurements are also performed for the chaotic carrier into which the message is encrypted.
