Abstract

We present the derivation of a new master equation for active mode locking in lasers that fully takes into account the coherent effects of the light matter interaction through a peculiar adiabatic elimination technique. The coherent effects included in our model could be relevant to describe properly mode-locked semiconductor lasers where the standard Haus' Master Equation predictions show some discrepancy with respect to the experimental results and can be included in the modelling of other mode locking techniques too.
