Abstract

In this work, a 10.287-GHz semiconductor-based harmonically mode-locked laser with 1000 finesse intracavity etalon is demonstrated. The timing jitter integrated from 1 Hz to 100 MHz (Nyquist) is 3 fs (14 fs). The optical linewidth is similar to 500 Hz and the optical frequency stability is < 150 kHz over 30 s.
