The dynamics of a mode-locked SOA fiber ring are investigated experimentally and numerically. Generation of near transform-limited (time-bandwidth product=0.7) 1.5 μm 54 ps FWHM pulses with a peak power of 2.8 mW at a repetition rate of 960 MHz is demonstrated experimentally. The experimental results agree well with the simulation results obtained using a transmission line laser model (TLLM) model, Both experiments and numerical simulations show how the RF power and the detuning affect the pulsewidth
