High Repetition Rate Monolithic Passively Mode-Locked Semiconductor Quantum-Dot Laser: Investigation of the Locking Regimes and the RF Linewidth

We investigate global mode-locked regimes of a passively mode-locked quantum-dot GaAs/InAs laser at 1300 nm. Detailed RF linewidth studies demonstrate the possibility of obtaining 1.9 ps pulses with a pulse-to-pulse timing jitter of 6.5 fs/cycle.
