Abstract

We present experimental confirmation of bistable behavior between two distinct periodic orbits in a self-pulsing dual-wavelength erbium-doped fiber laser. This result had been theoretically predicted with an ion-pair model that was valid for the description of most of the dynamic properties of this kind of laser.
