Paper Abstract

We have experimentally investigated the soliton interaction in a passively mode-locked fiber soliton ring laser and revealed the existence of three types of strong soliton interaction: a global type of soliton interaction caused by the existence of unstable CW components; a long-range type of soliton interaction mediated through the radiative dispersive waves; and the direct soliton interaction. Based on the soliton interactions we found that the appearance of the various soliton operation modes observed in the passively mode locked fiber soliton lasers could be well explained. Numerical simulations have also confirmed the existence of these soliton interactions and their consequences.
