Abstract

We examine the statistical properties of mode-locked laser light in which each frequency component is subsequently given a constant, independent, and random phase shift. We find that, under certain conditions, this random phase encoding produces a pseudorandom light intensity that is statistically equivalent to that of a free-running multimode laser, with a negative exponential intensity-probability distribution.
