Abstract

We report on the trapping of noise-like pulse in a figure-eight fiber laser mode locked by nonlinear amplifier loop mirror (NALM). After achievement of noise-like vector pulse, it was found that the wavelength shift of the two resolved polarization components responsible for the pulse trapping was very sensitive to the cavity birefringence. By properly rotating the polarization controllers (PCs), the wavelength shift could be up to 4.8 nm, which is much larger than that of conventional soliton trapping. The observed results would shed some light on the fundamental physics of noise-like pulse as well as its vector features in fiber lasers.
