Dissipative soliton resonance (DSR) occurs in the close vicinity of a hypersurface in the space of parameters of the equation governing propagation in a dissipative nonlinear medium. Pulsed solutions can acquire virtually unlimited energies as soon as the equation parameters converge toward that specific hypersurface. Here we extend previous studies that… (More)
We consider a high-order nonlinear Schrödinger (HNLS) equation with third-and fourth-order dispersions, quintic non-Kerr terms, self steepening, and self-frequency-shift effects. The model applies to the description of ultrashort optical pulse propagation in highly nonlinear media. We propose a complex envelope function ansatz composed of single bright,… (More)
Dissipative solitons form a new paradigm for the investigation of phenomena involving stable structures in nonlinear systems far from equilibrium. Basic principles can be applied to a wide range of phenomena in science. Recent results involving solitons and soliton complexes of the complex cubic-quintic Ginzburg–Landau equation are presented.
We report passive mode-locking of a soliton erbium-doped double-clad fiber laser operating at the 322<sup>nd</sup> harmonic of the fundamental cavity frequency. Repetition rates scalable up to 3 GHz have been obtained with a pulse duration of about 1 ps and a pulse energy of about 18 pJ. The supermode suppression at the 322<sup>nd</sup> harmonic is better… (More)
