In this paper, the influence of fluctuation amplitude and frequency of the injection field on the dynamics and synchronization of semiconductor lasers are studied numerically. The fluctuation amplitude and frequency of the injection field are controlled by external modulation of the master laser. In the simulation, we use a modified correlation coefficient named similarity index to evaluate the synchronization performance. The results show that frequency and fluctuation amplitude of the injection field play important roles on the dynamics and synchronization quality of the system. Large fluctuation amplitude and moderate fluctuation frequency of the injection field will contribute to the synchronization of the two lasers. The results can also be extended to the analysis of chaotic signals.
