Abstract

We report on a long-cavity passively mode-locked fiber laser in the anomalous dispersion regime. The nonlinear polarization rotation technique is employed to achieve mode locking. The output pulse from the fiber laser has a rectangular shape and a corresponding Gaussian-shape spectral profile. Stable mode-locked pulses at a repetition rate of 278kHz with single pulse energy as high as 715nJ are obtained under equal bidirectional pumping power of 500mW in cavity. The experimental results demonstrate that the passively mode-locked fiber laser operating in the anomalous regime can also realize a high-energy pulse, which is different from the conventional low-energy soliton pulse.
