Carrier-Pulse Envelope Dynamics in Passively Mode-Locked Ti:Sapphire Lasers



K W. Holman, R J. Jones, A Marian, S T. Cundiff, Jun Ye


We have performed systematic studies of intensity-related dynamics of the pulse repetition and carrier-envelope offset frequency in passively mode-locked Ti: sapphire lasers. We compare the results between two different repetion frequency laser systems that have different intracavity dispersion compensation schemes. We find that the carier-envelop phase noise and its dynamic response depend critically upon the mode-locking conditions. Intensity-related shift of the laser spectrum is jound to be instrumental in theoretical interpretations.
