Numerical studies for anticipating chaos synchronization in semiconductor lasers with optical feedback are presented. Anticipating chaos synchronization in a delay-differential system is believed to occur when all chaos parameters between the two systems are perfectly coincident with each other. However, we find new schemes of anticipating chaos synchronization when the parameters between the two systems have mismatches. Under these conditions, the time lag between the two laser outputs is equal to that of anticipating chaos synchronization, but the physical origin of the phenomenon comes from optical injection-locking or amplification in laser systems. We show the evidence of such chaotic synchronization using trajectories in the phase space of the phase difference and the carrier density in the laser oscillations.
