Limits to Pulse Advance and Delay in Actively Modelocked Lasers
- 124 Downloads
The time domain approach to modeling modelocked lasers involves following a pulse around the cavity, recording the gain, loss, pulse broadening, pulse shortening and pulse delay, and finding a pulse shape that will reproduce itself after one complete roundtrip [1–3]. Such a self-consistent solution does not automatically guarantee stability against noise nor against second order effects which are ignored but may accumulate anomalously.
