The use of an optoelectronic phase-locked loop to stabilize the pulsation frequency of a three-section, passively mode-locked quantum well laser diode at 41 GHz is discussed. It is shown that the free-running mode-locked signal, with a radio frequency (RF) linewidth of 770 kHz, can be stabilized to the linewidth of a reference RF oscillator (<1 kHz). The stabilized mode-locked signal has a phase noise of -70 dBc/Hz at 370 kHz offset. Tracking of the mode-locked signal to the external reference RF oscillator is maintained over 11 MHz. This is, in effect, an actively mode-locked laser source at 41 GHz.<>
