Abstract

We report on a passively mode-locked erbium-doped fiber laser featuring a large normal dispersion and emitting high-energy dissipative solitons. Mode-locking is stabilized by the combined actions of a high nonlinearity amplitude modulator and a narrow band spectral filter. The laser routinely delivers highly chirped pulses with more than 38 nJ energy that can be compressed down to 700 fs duration using bulk gratings. Numerical simulations confirm the experimental results and reveal the self-similar pulse evolution along the normal dispersion fibers included inside the cavity.
