Abstract

Modulational instability (MI) is employed in a self-induced ring cavity configuration based on highly nonlinear dispersion-shifted fiber (HNL DSF) and an erbium-doped fiber amplifier to generate a continuous-wave 262-GHz train of 365-fs optical solitons. The laser operates around 1540 nm, with an average output power of 15 mW. MI is achieved at a low threshold as a result of low average cavity dispersion and high fiber nonlinearity. It is shown that, because of the normal dispersion of the HNL DSF, the solitons exist in the average soliton regime.
