Abstract

Nanosecond dissipative soliton resonance pulse is a demonstration of an all polarization-maintaining (PM) thulium-doped fiber laser in a nonlinear amplifying loop mirror (NALM)-based figure-eight configuration. Each loop of the apparatus includes a controllable power amplifier. With increased amplifier power, pulse width broadens linearly from 3.6 to 13.5 ns, and maximum single pulse energy can reach 27.5 nJ. Interestingly, the output peak power presents two completely opposite proportional effects in terms of the variation of settings for two amplifiers, respectively. The experimental results show that the NALM loop plays an important role for tunable pulse duration, and the unidirectional ring part makes a significant contribution for power scaling.
