Abstract

We report experimental evidence of antisymmetric solitons in a mode-locked fiber laser with a strong dispersion map. A dispersion-managed soliton breathes as it traverses the dispersion map, and the antisymmetric dispersion-managed soliton can be considered a tightly bound soliton pair with π phase difference between the component solitons. The antisymmetric soliton is observed only at particular values of the net cavity dispersion.
