Abstract : The harmonically mode locked laser system was synchronized with another fiber laser to establish a shared time base, and to demonstrate laser injection seeding. Synchronized pico second range pulses, such as the ones generated here, can support eventual data rates up to 100 Gigabits for phase locked laser array applications and communication links. A method of controlling the pulse rate by feedback stabilization was studied in detail. A nonlinear mechanism for shortening the pulses was experimentally tested.
