Paper Abstract

In this paper we discuss the effects of white noise on the spectral lineshape of a simple two dimensional oscillator and compare to the phase noise spectrum predicted by the methods of Demir and Kaertner. A numerical method based on the Fokker-Planck equation is employed to directly calculate the spectrum of the dynamical system. These results are then used as a benchmark to assess the efficiency of a novel small-noise perturbation method we have developed. Due to the simplicity of the oscillator it is possible to solve the approximated partial differential equation using both characteristics; these solutions are then compared to the exact numerical results. We elucidate the effect of the amplitude-phase coupling term which causes the spectral lineshape to become non-Lorentzian.
