Paper Abstract

It has been observed that Er3+-doped fiber lasers, under certain conditions, can be self-mode-locked and self-Q-switched simultaneously without any additional intracavity components. An experimental investigation into such phenomena has been conducted with various fiber lasers. A self-mode-locked pulse width shorter than 500 ps (the limit of our measurement capability) has been obtained within the self-Q-switched pulse at 8 kHz repetition rate and with 500 mW peak power. The fiber design and laser performance are presented. The mechanism of operation and the potential applications are discussed.
