We measure the statistics of phase locking levels of coupled fiber lasers with fluctuating cavity lengths. We found that the measured distribution of the phase locking level of such coupled lasers can be described by the generalized extreme value distribution. For large number of lasers the distribution of the phase locking level can be approximated by a Gumbel distribution. We present a simple model, based on the spectral response of coupled lasers, and the calculated results are in good agreement with the experimental results.
