We show that the active nonlinear coupler laser proposed by us can produce picosecond pulse trains in dual-core fiber lasers with positive group-velocity dispersion. These pulses are accurately described by a linearly chirped soliton profile. The linear chirp should make it possible to obtain subpicosecond pulses widths through extracavity chirp compensation.
