Application of the Sampling and Replication Operators to Describe Mode-Locked Radiation


Sampling and replication operators are used for a description of the mode-locking radiation. Such description allows taking into account the influence of the shape of the gain curve of the active medium of the mode-locking laser on the form of the pulses generated by it.
