Abstract

We report passive mode locking of a soliton erbium-doped double-clad fiber laser operating at the 322nd harmonic of the fundamental cavity frequency. Repetition rates up to 3GHz have been obtained with pulses of 1ps duration and 18pJ of energy. The supermode suppression at the 322nd harmonic is better than 25dB. In addition, the transition dynamics from a bunched state of pulses to stable harmonic mode locking is presented, revealing a very long time scale.
