A novel experimental setup for injection-locking experiments is presented. The single-mode-fiber-based configuration allows one to precisely control the power and the polarization state of the light injected from the master laser into the slave laser cavity. Different behaviors typical for injection locking with single-mode semiconductor lasers (e.g., stable injection locking, undamped relaxation oscillations, nearly degenerate four-wave mixing, period doubling, chaotic behavior) are experimentally observed and theoretically verified using a rate-equation-based model. Measurements and calculations are entirely linked analytically and thoroughly compared by means of the corresponding power spectra. The good quantitative agreement between measurements and model validates the model, the analytical approach, and the experimental setup
