Timing jitter (phase noise) and power fluctuations (intensity noise) in a semiconductor laser driven with a periodic current waveform, in the large signal regime are investigated theoretically. The temporal behavior of the laser output power is calculated numerically from the modified rate equation with Monte Carlo simulation of the random processes, both free-running and active mode-locked configurations are treated. The temporal width and root-mean-square (rms) timing jitter and energy fluctuation of the pulses are calculated, as are the correlation and spectral properties of the noise
