Abstract

In this paper the influence of different feedback (FB) and synchronization schemes on the timing phase noise (TPN) power spectral density (PSD) of a quantum-dot based passively mode-locked laser (MLL) is studied numerically and by experiments. The range of investigated schemes cover hybrid mode-locking, an opto-electrical feedback configuration, an all-optical feedback configuration and optical pulse train injection configuration by means of a master MLL. The mechanism responsible for TPN PSD reduction in the case of FB is identified for the first time for monolithic passively MLL and relies on the effective interaction of the timing of the intra-cavity pulse and the time-delayed FB pulse or FB modulation together with an statistical averaging of the independent timing deviations of both. This mechanism is quantified by means of simulation results obtained by introducing an universal and versatile simple time-domain model.
