Ultrashort pulse propagation in high gain optical fiber amplifiers with normal dispersion is studied by self-similarity analysis of the nonlinear Schrödinger equation with gain. An exact asymptotic solution is found, corresponding to a linearly chirped parabolic pulse which propagates self-similarly subject to simple scaling rules. The solution has been(More)
We report here the first demonstration of a mode-locked fiber laser delivering parabolic pulses (similaritons) at 1534 nm. The use of a Raman-based gain medium potentially allows its implementation at any wavelength. The 22nJ output similariton pulses have a true parabolic shape both in the time and spectral domains and a linear chirp. Linear recompression(More)
Self-similarity techniques are used to study pulse propagation in a normal-dispersion optical fiber amplifier with an arbitrary longitudinal gain profile. Analysis of the nonlinear Schrödinger equation that describes such an amplifier leads to an exact solution in the high-power limit that corresponds to a linearly chirped parabolic pulse. The self-similar(More)
We report on a new design for a passively mode locked fibre laser employing all normal dispersion polarisation maintaining fibres operating at 1 μm. The laser produces linearly polarized, linearly chirped pulses that can be recompressed down to 344 fs. Compared to previous laser designs the cavity is mode-locked using a nonlinear amplifying fibre loop(More)
A broad class of exact self-similar solutions to the nonlinear Schrödinger equation (NLSE) with distributed dispersion, nonlinearity, and gain or loss has been found describing both periodic and solitary waves. Appropriate solitary wave solutions applying to propagation in optical fibers and optical fiber amplifiers with these distributed parameters have(More)
A broad class of exact self-similar solutions to the nonlinear Schrödinger equation (NLSE) with distributed dispersion, nonlinearity, and gain or loss has been found.

We present a new asymptotically exact analytical similariton solution of the generalized nonlinear Schrdinger equation for pulses propagating in fiber amplifiers and lasers with normal dispersion including the effect of gain saturation. Numerical simulations are in excellent agreement with this analytical solution describing self-similar linearly chirped(More)
The generation of self-similar parabolic pulses (similaritons) has so far only been obtained in single-pass Raman amplifier configurations, or in rare-earth doped fiber lasers. We report here the first demonstration of a mode-locked parabolic pulse fiber laser, which can potentially be run at any wavelength using Raman gain. This new all-fiber ring(More)
We present approximate but nevertheless highly accurate self-similar solutions to the generalized linear Schrödinger Equation appropriate to the description of pulse propagation in an optical fibre under the influence of distributed dispersion and gain or attenuation. These new similariton solutions apply for any shape of linearly chirped pulse for any(More)
We present an analytical solution for propagating pulses in normal dispersion fiber amplifiers, including the effect of third-order dispersion. The solution of the generalized nonlinear Schrödinger equation is based on asymptotic methods, first-order perturbation theory, and a renormalization procedure and leads to determination of the critical length(More)
