Describes a method of reducing the timing jitter between two passively mode-locked femtosecond titanium (Ti)-sapphire laser systems. Supplementation by the scheme of a commercially available system which locks two Ti-sapphire lasers to a master clock; Optimization of the tradeoff between temporal resolution and throughput depending on experimental needs.
