Paper Abstract

We present two methods for timing jitter measurement. The first method uses the spectral content of the noise, and, the second method uses autocorrelation and cross correlation of the pulsed output. For a distributed feedback (DFB) laser gain switched at 1 GHz, the timing jitter is about 3-4 ps. When an external CW laser injected into the DFB laser, the timing jitter can be reduced to 1-1.5 ps.
