Resonant dispersive waves generated by high-order dispersion in a Ti:sapphire mode-locked solitary laser are investigated and experiments are found to be in good agreement with theoretical analysis. Both theory and experiment show that the wavelength differences can be tuned in a large range via changing the cavity dispersion. This simple technique can be applied to the fields where tunable femtosecond pulses at multiple wavelengths are needed. The described mechanism may be applied in other systems where solitons are known to exist.
