Abstract

We report the experimental observation of multiple gain-guided solitons in an erbium-doped fiber laser made of all normal-dispersion fibers. Numerical simulations show that, in the case of a narrow gain bandwidth, under the action of the cavity pulse peak clamping effect multiple gain-guided solitons can indeed be formed in a laser.
