Abstract

We analyze the entire power spectrum of pulse trains generated by a continuously operating actively mode-locked laser in the presence of noise. We consider the effect of amplitude, pulse-shape, and timing-jitter fluctuations that are characterized by stationary processes. Effects of correlations between different parameters of these fluctuations are studied also. The nonstationary timing-jitter fluctuations of passively mode-locked lasers and their influence on the power spectrum is discussed as well.
