Abstract
Numerical model for simulation of generation process in advanced pulse-periodic high-peak-power picosecond diode-pumped Nd:YAG and Nd:YLF lasers has been developed. The model adequately describes picosecond pulse formation governed by active and passive mode-locking, negative feedback and adjustable loss level in the oscillator cavity. Optical jitter of output pulses attributed to laser generation development from spontaneous noise level was evaluated using statistical analysis of calculation results. In the presented laser scheme, minimal jitter value on the level ~40 ps was estimated.
