Abstract

Temporal bound solitons are observed experimentally in a passively mode-locked figure-eight fiber laser with a dispersion-imbalanced nonlinear optical loop mirror (DI-NOLM). Soliton interactions are suppressed by use of a spectral bandpass filter, and Gordon-Haus timing jitter is eliminated with a DI-NOLM, which removes the cw light component in the laser cavity. The bound solitons are found to be stable for several hours in the laser cavity when no external perturbation is applied.
