This paper reports on the synchronization proprieties in bidirectional coupled current modulated vertical cavity surface-emitting lasers (CMVCSELs) based on the combined model of Danckaert et al.. Regular pulse packages and chaotic behaviors are found in CMVCSEL during the numerical results. The suitable coupling strength leading to high quality of synchronization is determined by numerical analysis. The consequence of the parameter mismatch and the duration of the synchronization process are also highlighted.
