Abstract
We studied self-phasing dynamics in a Q-switched passively coupled two-gain-element fiber laser array. Simultaneous Q-switching and self mode-locking were observed in our experiments. Our data shows that phase-locking in our laser array was stable under perturbations. The phase-locked state was able to react to the phase perturbations in a time comparable to the rise time of the self mode-locked pulse. The establishment of the phase-locked state from the incoherent state was found to be shorter (or perhaps much shorter) than the rise time of the Q-switched pulse.
