Paper Abstract

We experimentally investigated the polarization vector characteristics in an Er-doped fiber laser based on graphene that was deposited on microfiber. A variety of dynamic states, including polarization locked fundamental soliton, and polarization domain wall square pulses and their harmonic mode locked counterparts have all been observed with different pump powers and polarization states. These results indicated that the microfiber-based graphene not only could act as a saturable absorber but also could provide high nonlinearity, which is favorable for the cross coupling between the two orthogonal polarization components. It was worth to mention that it is the first time to obtain the polarization domain wall solitons in a mode locked fiber laser.
