Semiconductor reflection modulator synchronizes mode-locked fiber oscillators

Abstract

Using the absorption modulation of an optically-driven nonlinear semiconductor mirror, we have synchronized 1.56 /spl mu/m mode-locked erbium fiber laser to the pulse train from a mode-locked ytterbium fiber laser operating at 1.06-/spl mu/m.
