Paper Abstract

We numerically present the generation of five types of pulse states using nonlinear Schrödinger equations in an all-normal-dispersion (ANDi) mode-locked fiber laser based on a nonlinear amplifying loop mirror (NALM). Using a two-dimensional pump power space of the two amplifiers, we investigate the pulse characteristics among typical dissipative soliton resonance (DSR), dissipative soliton (DS), transition state (TS) between DS and DSR, noise-like pulse (NLP) and unstable pulsation state. Different from previous research results, we firstly find that asymmetric coupling ratio of the NALM causes dependent and non- monotonous variation of the pulse peak power and width of DSR. The location of incident power and the saturable power of NALM (when the former is 2 times higher, higher, equal, lower than the later) determine the pulse states (NLP, DSR, unstable, DS or TS) in the cavity. The pump-power intercoupling-induced frequency-selective NALM transmission is demonstrated by the simulated pulse evolution over round-trips.
