The dynamics of an actively mode-locked lasers is investigated experimentally and the results of numerical simulations are presented. Different regimes corresponding to the relaxation oscillations and spiking are observed depending on the level of loss modulation are observed when the mode-locking is destroyed. The experiments show that spiking never occurs when the modulation signal is below the critical value. The numerical results demonstrate in detail the processes of pulse profile and pulse-train instabilities.
