Abstract

We demonstrate experimentally and numerically the operation of a self-pulsating fiber laser based on the cascaded effects of soliton self-frequency shift and self-phase modulation spectral broadening. The combination of those two effects triggers and sustains the propagation of picosecond pulses in the cavity. At one of the outputs, the laser emits a supercontinuum with spectral width in excess of 150 nm at the repetition rate of 95 kHz.
