The dynamics of two mutually coupled chaotic diode lasers are investigated experimentally and numerically. By adding self-feedback to each laser, stable isochronal synchronization is established. This stability, which can be achieved for symmetric operation, is essential for constructing an optical public-channel cryptographic system. The experimental results on diode lasers are well described by rate equations of coupled single mode lasers.
