Two-mode beat phase noise of actively modelocked lasers
Abbreviated Journal Title
CAVITY SEMICONDUCTOR-LASER; MODE-LOCKED LASERS; Optics
An analytic expression for the phase noise spectrum is estimated when two arbitrary longitudinal modes are selected for beating from the output of an actively modelocked laser. A separate experiment confirmed the theory qualitatively. It was found that two- mode beating posseses more phase noise than the beating involving the entire mode spectrum, especially at low offset frequency, even though two mode beating noise is decoupled from the RF oscillator noise to the first order.
