On the basis of numerical simulation results, we put forward a way to realize harmonic passive mode locking of fiber lasers with an ultrahigh-repetition-rate pulse train. The equidistant distribution of ultrashort pulses filling the total laser cavity is due to bound-soliton mechanisms. In the case of large bound energy, such long soliton trains are very stable and have the ideal periodic structure as a soliton crystal.
