Abstract

We have analyzed pulse width and timing jitter in passively mode-locked two-section InAs quantum-dot lasers emitting at 1310 nm and have identified two distinct, extensive mode-locked regions with robust short pulses and low timing jitter. A record combination of 2 ps pulses and 25 fs cycle timing jitter ( 500 fs , 1 100 MHz ), with 1 mW average output power per facet, is demonstrated.
