Abstract

We report on a tunable all-fiber dissipative-soliton laser with a multimode interference filter that consists of a multimode fiber spliced between two single-mode fibers. By carefully selecting the fiber parameters, a filter with a central wavelength at 1032 nm and a bandwidth of 7.6 nm is constructed and used for spectral filtering in an all-normal-dispersion mode-locked ytterbium-doped fiber laser based on nonlinear polarization evolution. The laser delivers 31 mW of average output power with positively chirped 7 ps pulses. The repetition rate of the pulses is 15.3 MHz, and pulse energy is 2.1 nJ. Tunable dissipative-soliton over 12 nm is achieved by applying tension to the single-mode–multimode–single-mode filter.
