Abstract

A fiber ring laser that can produce nearly transform-limited soliton pulses is simulated. This laser has an erbium-doped optical-fiber amplifier and allows wavelength tuning through the interplay of fiber chromatic dispersion and the round-trip delay time of the laser. We show that a saturable absorber and a frequency limiter are required for the ring laser to self-start, i.e., to mode lock from initial noise and to operate stably. We also show that nonlinear polarization rotation with polarization selectivity inside the ring can act as a saturable absorber.
