Abstract

Recently, an interesting pulsing behavior of a fiber laser with intracavity Raman conversion was reported [ Y. Zhao and S. D. Jackson, Opt. Lett. 31, 751 (2006) ]. The pulsing has been interpreted as passive Q switching, but this interpretation needs to be revised. An alternative explanation predicts transient phenomena, which do not lead to a regular pulse train.
