Paper Abstract

We have experimentally observed bright-dark soliton pairs in an erbium-doped fiber ring laser for the first time. This approach is different from the vector dark domain wall solitons which separate the two orthogonal linear polarization eigenstates of the laser emission. In our laser, the bright-dark soliton pairs can co-exist in any one polarization state. Numerical simulations based on the coupled complex Ginzburg-Landau equations have confirmed the experimental results.
