Abstract

A novel all-fiberized dumbbell-shaped mode-locked fiber laser was developed to directly generate 80 nJ dissipative solitons, which can be linearly compressed from 85 to 1.2 ps externally with a diffraction grating pair. The pulse peak power reached 42 kW after compression. With the most available pump power, stable dissipative soliton bundles with up to 628 nJ bundle energy were obtained. The corresponding average output power reached 2.2 W. The employment of dual-nonlinear-optical-loop mirrors and large-mode-area fibers in the cavity played an essential role in improving structural compactness and producing high-energy ultrafast pulses. To the best of our knowledge, these are the most energetic compressible dissipative solitons generated from a strictly all-fiber cavity.
