Abstract

We demonstrate for the first time to our knowledge, experimentally and theoretically, that the pulse-to-pulse amplitude fluctuations that occur in pulse trains generated by actively mode-locked Er-doped fiber lasers in a repetition-rate-doubling rational-harmonic mode-locking regime are completely eliminated when the modulation frequency is properly tuned. Irregularity of the pulse position in the train was found to be the only drawback of this regime. One could reduce the irregularity to a value acceptable for applications by increasing the bandwidth of the optical filter installed in the laser cavity.
