Paper Abstract

This paper explores the affect of phase modulation (PM), amplitude modulation (AM), and thermal noise on the rf spectrum, phase jitter, timing jitter, and frequency stability of femtosecond lasers and other precision sources. Using these concepts we can suggest how some noise aspects of femtosecond pulsed lasers should scale.
