Numerical simulations of mode locking in synchronously pumped Tl0(1) color-center lasers are presented. An asymmetric response with respect to cavity mismatch and the origin of large-scale fluctuations in spontaneous-emission noise are described. It is shown that quasistationary pulse trains may be obtained on cavity tuning without a degradation in pulse quality.
