Paper Abstract

Formation and propagation of a new type of quasi-soliton in laser system was investigated. It was shown that the interplay between linear phase shift from the center of the luminescence band and nonlinear effect of the self-phase modulation enables to create the conditions for the self-ordering of the laser field. This technique is capable to generate stable ultra-short pulse trains. Analysis of the quasi-soliton stability allows to describe the cascade of oscillation effects in laser system accompanying the increase of the pump energy.
