Abstract

We demonstrate a novel mode locked ultrafast laser, based on an integrated high-Q microring resonator. Our scheme exhibits stable operation of two slightly shifted spectral optical comb replicas. It generates a highly monochromatic radiofrequency modulation of 65.8MHz with a linewidth < 10kHz, on a 200GHz output pulse train.

Optical (a)-(b) and Radio-Frequency (c)-(d) characterization of the laser output in the unstable regime: (a) experimental autocorrelation trace (red) and (b) experimental optical spectrum. The autocorrelation trace for a fully coherent transform limited system calculated from the spectrum in (b) is shown in dashed black in (a). RF signal of the laser output in time (c) and spectrum (d). The signal shows an irregular pulsation in the μs scale, as visible in (c) and in the inset of (d), where a zoom of the DC spectral components is plotted. In the inset in (d) a peak of the low-frequency noise components is visible around 150kHz. The RF signal also shows a pulsation due to the beating of the main cavity modes (super mode instability), as visible in the spectral components at 65MHz in (d), and in the fast modulation in the inset in (c).

Optical (a)-(b) and Radio-Frequency (c)-(d) characterization of the laser output in the pulsed stable regime: (a) experimental autocorrelation trace (red) and (b) experimental optical spectrum. The autocorrelation trace for a fully coherent transform limited system calculated from the spectrum in (b) is shown in dashed black in (a): the perfect agreement with the experimental trace indicates that the lines are indeed mode-locked. RF signal of the laser output in time (c) and spectrum (d). The isolated lines appearing below −30dB are basically due the high frequency sampler used to collect the RF data and to electromagnetic disturbs collected by the trans-impedance amplifier connected to the photodiode. The insets in (c) and (d) are zoom of the temporal trace and of the DC component associated to the spectrum, respectively.
