Abstract

We study soliton generation, based on self-consistent field theory, in cw solid-state lasers with semiconductor saturable absorbers. Various soliton destabilizations, i.e., the switch from femtosecond to picosecond generation (picosecond collapse), an automodulation regime, breakdown of soliton generation, and hysteresis behavior, are predicted. It is shown that the third-order dispersion reduces the region in which the solitons exist and causes pulse oscillation and a strong frequency shift.
