Abstract

We demonstrate a mode-locked, erbium-doped fiber laser with its repetition frequency synchronized to a second fiber laser via an intracavity electro-optic modulator (EOM). With servo control from the EOM (bandwidth 230kHz) and a slower speed intracavity piezoelectric transducer (resonance at 20kHz), we demonstrate stabilization of the repetition frequency with an in-loop rms timing jitter of 10fs, integrated over a bandwidth from 1Hzto100kHz. This represents what is to our knowledge the first time an EOM has been introduced inside a mode-locked laser cavity for fast servo action and the lowest timing jitter reported for a mode-locked fiber laser.
