detailed_info Two 1064 nm solid state Nd:YVO4 lasers were operated in a master-slave configuration. The laser crystals were pumped with 150 mW diode lasers (SDL) operating at 809 nm. The pump power was low enough to ensure single mode operation. Light from the master laser was injected into the slave via an acousto-optic modulator (AOM) and the relative injection power measured on a detector. The temperature of the master laser was tuned with the Peltier element to control the frequency detuning between the lasers. The optical input of a Tektronix CSA 7404 oscilloscope was used to measure the intensity time-series of the slave laser under different combinations of injection strength and frequency detuning. This dataset consists of 55,440 files containing a single time series corresponding to a particular combination of injection strength and frequency detuning. The value of injection and detuning are specified in the file attributes 'var1' and 'var2'. The filename also contains the detuning value and injection index.
