Generation of dissipative soliton resonance in a fiber laser based on a nonlinear optical loop mirror




Fiber laser, mode-locked lasers, pulse propagation, dissipative soliton resonance


We experimentally demonstrate generation of mode-locked pulses in dissipative soliton resonance (DSR) regime. The DSR pulses are obtained from a passively mode-locked figure-8 Er:Yb doped fiber laser operating in large net anomalous dispersion regime. The modelocked laser emission is based on a polarization-imbalanced nonlinear optical loop mirror (NOLM), acting as artificial saturable absorber. Stable square DSR pulses, obtained by carefully adjusting the NOLM properties, increase their duration from 2.47 ns to 46.52 ns as the pump power is increased from 0.68 to 6.31 W. With the maximum pump power launched, average output power of 73.95 mW with pulse energy of 53.39 nJ is achieved.
