LD10 – Effect of Self-Phase Modulation on The Signal Quality of Fourier Domain Mode-Locked Lasers

Aşırım O. E., Huber R., Jirauschek C.

In this paper, the impact of self-phase modulation on the noise performance of Fourier Domain Mode-Locked (FDML) lasers is investigated. It is shown that under a relatively high fiber nonlinearity and/or intracavity signal amplitude, an excess amount of noise generation occurs, which can not only lead to poor signal quality, but also operational instability. Hence, […]
