Abstract: We present an analytical study of the frequency comb coherence due to random noise in the pulses phases. We derive a simple expression for the comb lineshape, which depends on a single parameter Neff with the physical meaning of number of coherent comb pulses, inversely proportional to the variance of the phase jumps between subsequent comb pulses. A comparison to the case of a cw-monomode laser with white noise frequency fluctuations is also presented.
