Paper Abstract

A novel approach to residual jitter measurement examines the intensity cross correlation generated by two optical pulses with various relative delays. A relative delay of 25 pulses produces a residual jitter value of 26 fsec RMS for a 10 GHZ actively mode-locked ring laser. The phase noise measurement carried out to the Nyquist frequency offset gives 47 fsec RMS pulse-to-pulse timing jitter. The field correlation measurement obtains a 10 asec RMS pulse-to-pulse optical carrier jitter.
