Paper Abstract

The turn-on moment of a laser simulated emission generation is the subject of random fluctuations called jitter due to the statistical nature of the nonequilibrium carrier accumulation process in the laser active zone. The experimental research into the jitter in DFB and Fabry- Perot lasers shows its strong dependence on an operational mode of the laser. It was determined that the statistical distribution of the time fluctuations of light pulse front and back sides may differ in a laser biased below threshold and operating at a high modulation rate when the so-called pattern-effect is being displayed. The statistics of the jitter of the pulses rear fronts remains Gaussian, but as the modulation frequency grows it becomes more sophisticated for the head fronts.
