Abstract

We investigate the high-frequency timing jitter spectral density of mode-locked fiber lasers in different mode-locked regimes. Quantum-noise-limited timing jitter spectra of mode-locked-regime-switchable Yb fiber lasers are measured up to the Nyquist frequency with sub - 100 - as resolution. The integrated rms timing jitter of soliton, stretched-pulse, and self-similar Yb fiber lasers is measured to be 1.8, 1.1, and 2.9 fs , respectively, when integrated from 10 kHz to 40 MHz . The distinct behavior of jitter spectral density related to pulse formation mechanisms is revealed experimentally for the first time.
