Paper Abstract

An extension of the non-Markovian jump model of laser noise to the case of correlated frequency jumps is considered. The model parameters are the mean jump time the rms jump size and a correlation parameter which quantifies the degree of correlation between two successive jumps. A technique to obtain exact expressions for correlation functions is described. While the basic jump processes are stationary both the phase and frequency fluctuations are not. The field autocorrelation function for the pure phase jump process is stationary for all values of the correlation parameter. For the frequency jump process the average over all initial times of the two time field autocorrelation function is non zero only for fully anticorrelated jumps.
