4 June 1999 Sub-100-fs timing jitter of mode-locked laser
Author Affiliations +
Timing stabilization of mode-locked femtosecond laser is reported. Timing fluctuations of mode-locked laser come from the change in gain medium, and the change in cavity length via mechanical vibrations and environmental disturbances. To suppress the gain change, a low noise all-solid-state pump source was used. And the cavity optical length was controlled to be stable with a PZT and a motor driven translation stage. The timing jitter was reduced to be 77 fs.
