We have demonstrated remarkably low phase noise from a
conventional Kerr-lens modelocked Ti:sapphire laser using a carefully
assembled and characterized phase noise system. The ultimate phase noise
floor of -170 dBc/Hz is, we believe, the lowest laser phase noise
reported to date, and approaches that of high performance 100 MHz
crystal oscillators
