Experimental configuration for investigating the dynamics and the statistics of the phase locking level of coupled lasers that have no common frequency is presented. The results reveal that the probability distribution of the phase locking level of such coupled lasers fits a Gumbel distribution that describes the extreme value statistic of Gaussian processes. A simple model, based on the spectral response of the coupled lasers, is also described, and the calculated results are in good agreement with the experimental results.
