Abstract

We demonstrate a regeneratively mode-locked fiber-optical parametric oscillator that utilizes intracavity dispersion compensation to generate pulses at a 10-GHz repetition rate in both soliton and nonsoliton regimes. At the threshold pump power the generated pulses are close to fundamental solitons. At higher pump powers we found a significant deviation of the pulses from the sech² shape. In addition, the use of an ultralow-jitter self-starting pump-pulse source in a regenerative feedback loop allows for a significant reduction of the signal's timing jitter and amplitude noise.
