Abstract
We report on supermode noise suppression of a harmonically modelocked laser by optical injection. The modelocked laser was injection locked to a CW narrow linewidth source. Injection locking selects a single supermode group reducing the supermode noise spurs in the photodetected signal by 20 dB to a level of -130 dBc/Hz.
