Paper Abstract

A new method to describe the self-mode-locking process in femtosecond light generators is formulated based on stability and dynamics analysis for solitons in an equivalent continuous nonlinear medium. A novel type of dissipative optical solitons balanced due to the counteraction of gain nonlinearity and group velocity dispersion is predicted. These solitons feature the process of self-tuning of radiation spectra in the frequency domain towards the gain band edge or the frequency of zero-group-velocity dispersion. The effects of soliton interconversion and shortening to the minimum possible duration, which associate to the self- tuning phenomena, are investigated.
