Abstract

We give experimental evidence for a new type of mode-locking mechanism for Er-doped fiber lasers based on polarization evolution in an intracavity multiple-quantum-well waveguide. Experiments indicate that anisotropic properties of waveguides can continuously start the mode-locking process.
