We consider the model of fiber-laser cavities near the zero-dispersion point, based on the complex Ginzburg-Landau equation with the cubic-quintic nonlinearity and third-order dispersion (TOD) term. It is known that this model supports stable dissipative solitons. We demonstrate that the same model gives rise to several specific families of robust bound states of solitons. There are both stationary and dynamical bound states, with constant or oscillating separation between the bound solitons…

Mutual transitions between stationary and moving dissipative solitons

Polarization dynamics of ultrafast solitons.

We study the polarization dynamics of ultrafast solitons in mode-locked fiber lasers. We find that when a stable soliton is generated, its state of polarization shifts toward a stable state, and when

Replication of dissipative vortices modeled by the complex Ginzburg-Landau equation

Dissipative vortices are stable two-dimensional localized structures existing due to balance between gain and loss in nonlinear systems far from equilibrium. Being resistant to the dispersion and

Dynamical diversity of pulsating solitons in a fiber laser.

By utilizing real-time spectroscopy technique, namely, dispersive Fourier-transform (DFT), the distinct dynamical diversity of pulsating solitons in a fiber laser is revealed, and the concept of soliton pulsation is extended to the multi-soliton case.

Logic gates on stationary dissipative solitons.

This paper employs the basic model of dissipative opticalsolitons in the form of the complex Ginzburg-Landau equation with a potential term to study the interactions between two stationary dissipative solitons under the control influences and uses those interactions to implement various logic gates.

Widely stretchable soliton crystals in a passively mode-locked fiber laser.

It is demonstrated that a stable and robust soliton crystal can be formed by two types of primitive structures: single dissipative solitons and (or) pairs each consisting of a dissipativesoliton and a pulse with a lower amplitude.

Stable High‐Dimensional Weak‐Light Soliton Molecules and Their Active Control

Bound states of solitons, alias soliton molecules (SMs), are well known in 1D systems, while making stable bound states of multidimensional solitons is a challenging problem because of the underlying

Using the description of the interaction of SP's in terms of an effective potential, it is demonstrated that this fact may give way to formation of two pulse and multi-pulse bound states, which are weakly stable.
