Abstract
Low-capacitance, two-section, curved-waveguide gain elements were packaged with lensed polarization-maintaining fiber within standard-sized butterfly-style packages and shown to produce low-jitter pulses when used within a harmonically modelocked sigma cavity laser (jitter = 25 fs; 10 Hz - 10 MHz). Incorporation of a high finesse etalon filter into the sigma-cavity loop resulted in greater than 25 dB suppression of the supermode spurs while maintaining low integrated phase noise (jitter = 30 fs; 10 Hz - 10 MHz). A module containing the in-line sigma-cavity modelocked laser source and packaged semiconductor optical amplifiers was developed to create a configurable low jitter pulse source.
