Abstract

We report on the generation of linear dissipative soliton (LDS) from an erbium-doped actively mode-locked fiber laser. We show that depending on the down-chirping effect of quadratic phase modulation, instead of the fiber nonlinear Kerr effect in an all-normal-dispersion (ANDi) cavity, stable LDS can be realized in the linear dissipative system. The DS operation of ANDi laser and LDS operation of anomalous dispersion laser are experimentally investigated and compared, and the formation mechanisms of the DS and LDS are discussed. Finally, optical frequency comb generated by the LDS laser is demonstrated.
