Power stability
The MENHIR-1030 SERIES demonstrates high longterm power stability and is shot noise-limited above 4 MHz.

Repetition rate stability
The MENHIR-1030 SERIES features extreme repetition rate stability and ultra-low pulse-to-pulse jitter. The laser's repetition rate can be synchronized to an external RF reference. The free-running and locked phase noise of a MENHIR-1030 at 1 GHz is reported here. The phase noise is measured on the 10th harmonic, i.e., at 10 GHz.
