Abstract

Presently, the potential application of mode-locking, gain switching and Q-switching diode lasers in high speed sampling, processing and communications is limited by inherent timing jitter. This paper addressed reductions that may be made to the uncorrelated jitter for Q-switched lasers. As a result, uncorrelated jitter was reduced in a novel spontaneously initiated picosecond pulsed Q-switched laser diode. The performance is expected to be further enhanced by using Fabry-Perot laser geometries. Details will be presented.
