Abstract

A mode-locked laser diode (MLLD) provides a compact and reliable source of an optical frequency comb in the 1.5 μm wavelength region. Such a source is attractive of establishing frequency reference grids for telecommunications. Using high-bandwidth feedback, the pulse train is synchronized from a mode-locked semiconductor laser to an optical clock and achieved the lowest timing jitter for such devices.
