Paper Abstract

Frequency skewed optical pulses are generated via both a composite cavity structure in a fiberized semiconductor optical amplifier ring laser and a frequency skew loop outside the laser cavity. The composite cavity technique is similar to rational harmonic mode-locking, however it is based on cavity detuning rather than frequency detuning. These frequency skewed pulses are ideal for range detection applications since their interference results in a range dependent RF signal. The intracavity frequency skewed pulse train showed superior performance in both stability and signal quality.
