The use of optical cross correlations for characterizing timing jitter is investigated. Applications, limitations, and correspondence to radio frequency measurements are presented and clarified. The probability density function of the timing jitter of semiconductor mode-locked lasers is deconvolved from the cross-correlation measurements with the aid of pulse characterization techniques.
