Opt Lett 31:2737-8; discussion 2739-40. 2006..Lett.31, 751 (2006)]. The pulsing has been interpreted as passive Q switching, but this interpretation needs to be revised. An alternative explanation predicts transient phenomena, which do not lead to a regular pulse train...
- Timing jitter and phase noiseof mode-locked fiber lasersRüdiger Paschotta

Opt Express 18:5041-54. 2010..It is found that the achievable noise level and the limiting effects depend strongly on the type of fiber laser. Depending on the pulse formation mechanism, noise levels may be much higher than predicted by simplified models...
