Paper Abstract

We present computer simulation results of noise in a modelocked fiber laser system designed to operate in the 1550nm regime. Signal-to-noise ratio is determined, accounting for supermode effects for pulse-widths raging between 0.10ps and 5.0ps, and for a modulating frequency ranging from 400MHz to 10 GHz. Also, the effect of noise on the stability of the laser output characteristics such as pulse drop-out and amplitude fluctuations will be discussed.
