Abstract

We report an original noise-like pulse dynamics observed in a figure-eight fiber laser, in which fragments are continually released from a main waveform that circulates in the cavity. Particularly, we report two representative cases of the dynamics: in the first case the released fragments drift away from the main bunch and decay over a fraction of the round-trip time, and then vanish suddenly; in the second case, the sub-packets drift without decaying over the complete cavity round-trip time, until they eventually merge again with the main waveform. The most intriguing result is that these fragments, as well as the main waveform, are formed of units with sub-ns duration and roughly the same energy.

NameDescription
» Visualization 1: MP4 (1496 KB)      Several sub-packets of NLPs emerge randomly from the main packet and drift and decay slightly in both directions, until they suddenly disappear after some fraction of the cavity period, when their amplitude is still far from zero.
» Visualization 2: MP4 (1096 KB)      The multiple pulses completely fill the cavity, and coexist with the main pulse in a disordered way.
