Synchronizing cavity-configuration-dependent chaos in a solid-state laser system was investigated using a unidirectionally coupled scheme. A low coupling strength is enough to achieve spatial and temporal chaos synchronization, according to numerical simulations. The characteristics of nonidentical synchronization are obtained by changing three parameters - the pump power, the reflectivity of the output coupler and the radius of the curvature of the output coupler. A method for the propagation of errors is presented to estimate the characteristics of simultaneously varied multiple parameters. Chaos synchronization in plano-concave Nd:YVO4 lasers is experimentally observed.
