Abstract

We report the generation of both polarization-locked vector dissipative soliton and group velocity-locked vector conventional soliton in a nanotube-mode-locked fiber ring laser with large normal dispersion, for the first time to our best knowledge. Depending on the polarization-depended extinction ratio of the fiber-based Lyot filter, the two types of vector solitons can be switched by simply tuning the polarization controller. In the case of low filter extinction ratio, the output vector dissipative soliton exhibits steep spectral edges and strong frequency chirp, which presents a typical pulse duration of ~23.4 ps, and can be further compressed to ~0.9 ps. In the contrastive case of high filter extinction ratio, the vector conventional soliton has clear Kelly sidebands with transform-limited pulse duration of ~1.8 ps. Our study provides a new and simple method to achieve two different vector soliton sources, which is attractive for potential applications requiring different pulse profiles.
