Abstract

A transient analysis of pulse formation and mode locking for parametric traveling-wave modulation is considered. Steady-state cavity mode-locking conditions providing pulse width, and chirp taking mirror or facet dispersion into account, are discussed. A Gaussian-pulse parameter analysis for dispersive compensation resulting in intracavity pulse compression is introduced. Numerical estimates for semiconductor lasers are given.
