Paper Abstract

We present the results of our theoretical investigation on passive mode-locking of fiber lasers. The mode-locking is achieved using the nonlinear polarization technique. The practical case of the ytterbium-doped fiber laser operating is analysed. A simple model is developed allowing to study several features observed in passively mode-locked fiber lasers such as bistability between the mode-lock and the continuous regime, multiple pulse operation, hysteresis phenomena, bound solitons. The dynamics of the number of pulses as a function of laser parameters is also reported. Pump power hysteresis is demonstrated.
