Abstract
A general framework for the calculation of random switch-on times and transient intensity fluctuations is reviewed. Several applications including dye lasers and the detection of weak signals are considered. In particular single mode semiconductor laser gain switching is discussed: Results are given for the dispersion in the maximum value of the laser intensity at the first peak of the relaxation oscillations. Such dispersion is easily related to the jitter in the switch-on times.
