Abstract

The timing fluctuations of a mode-locked Nd:YAG laser are reduced by electronic feedback. Timing fluctuations at rates of 50 to 250 Hz are reduced by more than 20 dB, the total timing fluctuations are reduced from 2.9 to 0.9 psec rms, and long-term drift is reduced to 0.5 psec/min. Applications include time-resolved probing experiments and synchronization of lasers.
