Abstract

Mode-locked lasers with strong high order dispersion exhibit rich nonlinear dynamics. Here we numerically and experimentally demonstrate coexistence of dissipative soliton (DS) and stretched pulse (SP) in a dual-wavelength mode-locked Tm-doped fiber laser with strong third-order dispersion (TOD), where the DS and SP show completely different pulse duration and peak power. Wavelength-dependent feature of the net cavity group-velocity dispersion (GVD) leaded by the strong TOD plays a key role for the coexistence patterns. To our best knowledge, this is the first demonstration of the coexistence of different mode-locked pulse regimes with strong laser cavity TOD.
