Abstract

By employing the standard frequency-domain eigenfunction expansion technique, we present an analysis on the residual timing jitter of actively harmonic mode-locked lasers incorporated with high-finesse Fabry–Perot filters. Simple formulas that directly relate the pulse train residual timing jitter performance to several experimentally measurable qualities, such as the Fabry–Perot filter finesse and the residual phase-modulation noise knee frequency, are given and discussed.
