Paper Abstract

We experimentally demonstrate an all-fiber similariton generation, amplification and compression laser system for the first time. The system can generate 4.1 nJ, 75.6-fs pedestal free pulses with 54 kW peak power. In addition, the pulse duration can be tuned through modifying the pump power. The corresponding spectrum width is 51 nm, and without spectral spikes. Such high quality ultra-short pulses are benefited from the linear chirp of similaritons. The seeded similariton is generated in a soliton-similariton switchable oscillator, in which, soliton or similariton can be chosen to emit alternatively by controlling polarization. Furthermore, we experimentally demonstrated the relationship between the gain and the spectral width of similaritons.
