Mode locking in solitary lasers.

Abstract

We present an analysis of passively mode-locked lasers in which pulse formation is dominated by the interplay between self-phase modulation and negative dispersion in separate cavity elements. Steady-state pulse parameters and stability issues are discussed. Stability in these solitary systems relies on some passive amplitude modulation, and the ultimate system performance is found to depend sensitively on the magnitude of amplitude modulation relative to that of phase modulation.
