Abstract

We show numerically the existence of vibrating soliton pairs that are consistent with observations performed with a passively mode-locked fiber laser. These vibrating pairs are new types of multisoliton complexes that exist in the vicinity of the phase-locked soliton pairs discovered a few years ago [Opt. Lett. 27, 966 (2002) ]. The pairs are found numerically with a laser propagation model that includes nonlinear dissipation and cavity periodicity, and they can appear following a Hopf-type bifurcation when a cavity parameter is tuned.
