Abstract: A linearized intensity modulator for pulsed light based on an injection-locked mode-locked laser (MLL) is presented here. This has been realized by introducing a monolithic Fabry-Pérot MLL into one of the arms of a conventional Mach-Zehnder interferometer (MZI) and injection-locking it to a MLL which is the input to the interferometer. By modulating the current on the gain section or the voltage of the saturable absorber (SA) section of the injection-locked laser, one can introduce an arcsine phase response on each of the injected longitudinal modes. By combining the modulated optical comb with its unmodulated counterpart one can produce a linearized intensity modulator. The linearity of this modulator is inherent in its design and no pre- or postdistortion linearization scheme is utilized. The results of the two-tone intermodulation experiment are presented here for this modulator and a spur-free dynamic range (SFDR) of ~70 dB·Hz
