This paper presents a theoretical treatment of the fluctuation mechanism involved in the generation of picosecond laser pulses with saturable absorbers. The processes responsible for the shortening of the pulsewidth and for selection of the most intense pulse are treated. Some experimental results that confirmed the treatment are presented. The influence of inertia of saturable absorber and nonlinear losses (self-focusing and self-modulation) is discussed.
