Abstract

The first demonstration of a compact all-fiber figure-9 double-clad erbium-ytterbium laser working in the dissipative soliton resonance (DSR) regime is presented. Mode-locking was achieved using a nonlinear amplifying loop (NALM) resonator configuration. The laser was assembled with an additional 475 m long spool of SMF28 fiber in the NALM loop in order to obtain large net-anomalous cavity dispersion (10.4  ps2), and therefore ensure that DSR would be the dominant mode-locking mechanism. At maximum pump power (4.78 W) the laser generated rectangular-shaped pulses with 455 ns duration and an average power of 950 mW, which at a repetition frequency of 412 kHz corresponds to a record energy of 2.3 μJ per pulse.
