Abstract

Cross-correlation widths of 2.2 psec between picosecond pulses at two wavelengths have been observed with a double-mode-locked dye laser. This was achieved after careful optimization and stabilization of the laser. The jitter in the laser output is deduced to be about 0.3 psec. The jitter in the round-trip time was also measured and found to be about 0.3 psec. Other cases have been observed in which satellite pulses in the lasing wavelengths are clearly resolved.
