Abstract

The experimentally measured timing jitter of a self-mode-locked Ti:sapphire laser is compared with the theoretically predicted quantum limit. Timing jitter figures of 150 fs (100–500 Hz) and 80 fs (500–5000 Hz), which approach the quantum limit, have been achieved by use of an improved cavity phase-locking technique.
