Paper Abstract

Mode-locked fiber lasers with low timing jitter and high repetition rate is desired for various applications including photonics analog-to-digital conversion, microwave synthesis and high-precision clock distribution. We demonstrate a compact all fiber laser mode locked by semiconductor saturable absorber mirror with linear cavity. The laser is operating near 1.55 μm. It has a repetition rate of 250 MHz and the root-mean-square timing jitter is 8 fs integrated from 100 Hz to 1 MHz measured at the third harmonic frequency of 750 MHz.
