A family of compact pulsed fiber lasers is described that employs broadband, wavelength-flexible Raman scattering in passively mode-locked figure-of-eight fiber laser geometries. Specifically, sources at 1.57, 1.33, and 1.41 µm with respective soliton durations of 440, 500, and 860 fs are reported. Operation is possible at other wavelengths with a suitable pump source, gain fiber, and components.
