What can be the outcome of the interaction between a dissipative soliton pair and a soliton singlet? We report an experimental observation of “elastic” collisions as well as “inelastic” formation of triplet soliton states in a fiber laser setup. These observations are supported with the numerical simulations based on the dispersion (parameter) managed cubic-quintic Ginzburg-Landau equation model.
