Abstract

We demonstrate a soliton fiber laser based on an anomalously dispersive erbium-doped fiber butt-coupled to a saturable absorber mirror for passive mode locking. The laser generates 180fs pulses at a repetition rate of 491MHz and exhibits a timing jitter as low as 20fs over the frequency range 1kHz10MHz.
