Abstract

The effect of third-order dispersion on bound states of pulses in the anomalous-dispersion fiber ring laser is analyzed experimentally and numerically. The bound states are formed by an interaction through dispersive waves. Due to third-order dispersion, the resonant sideband spectrum is asymmetric. The most intense sideband drives the interaction in these bound states and fixes their separation to a discrete set of values.
