Abstract

Actively modelocked lasers are desirable as ultra-stable sources for timing distribution in the GHz regime, and have been shown to be capable of generating pulses with low phase noise and high repetition rates [1-3] However, the long term stability and reliability in uncontrolled environments of such systems often present challenges to their practical implementation. Here we present a novel system architecture showing how long term laser stability can be obtained over a broad range of operating conditions using a combination of active and passive methods.
