Abstract

We present an experimental study of the stability of passively mode-locked pulses against noise in multipulse operation of an erbium-doped fiber laser. The laser properties are determined by two dimensionless combinations of the laser parameters. Measurements of the pulses' destabilization threshold as a function of those laser parameters show the optimal regions that maximize the mode-locked pulse stability. We find good agreement between the experimental observations and the theoretical predictions.
