Abstract

Passively mode locked fiber lasers are conventionally used as sources of high quality stable ultrashort pulses. The pulse characteristics of such lasers can be completely characterized using techniques employing radio-frequency analyzers, autocorrelators, FROG etc. However these methods have limited applicability when it comes to more complex operational regimes – for example when the laser is partially mode locked, has a dispersive background, or is exhibiting intermittent behaviour. Here, we demonstrate how the method of spatio-temporal dynamics [1] can be used for the characterization of such complex mode-locked regimes in passively mode locked fiber lasers.
