Paper Abstract

Phase-locking of the modes of a laser results in the emission of a train of short pulses. These pulses are essential for basic physics experiments as well as for electronic and opto-electronic technologies. The most reliable method to phase-lock laser modes is active mode-locking, achieved by inserting a phase or amplitude modulator in the laser cavity. In this paper, we study the stability of actively mode-locked lasers to linear and nonlinear perturbations.
