Abstract

The pulse dynamics operating in dissipative soliton resonance (DSR) region is experimentally investigated in a fiber ring laser. With the increase of pump power, the pulse profile transit from sech-like to rectangular shape was observed. The generated pulse in DSR region exhibits the conventional soliton spectrum with sideband generation. The duration-tuning range of the rectangular pulse is up to the cavity roundtrip time. Particularly, during the process of pulse duration broadening it was found that the rectangular pulse would trap a weak pulse generated from cw background. The obtained results may be useful for better understanding the DSR phenomenon.
