Abstract: We report the experimental control of chaos in an optically modulated CO2 laser. The CO2 laser was driven into chaos by injecting a feedback beam modulated by an electro-optical modulator. Control of chaos was achieved using a modified proportional feedback technique in which the control pulses were delayed by approximately one relaxation period. Using this technique, it was possible to control unstable periodic orbits up to period 6.
