Abstract
We report the generation of a variety of periodically modulated pulse trains in the CPM dye laser. These pulses are reminiscent of high-order solitons. We have identified the nonlinearity which prevents the formation of pulses which are solutions of the nonlinear Schrodinger's equation. A modification of the laser cavity removes this nonlinearity and true N = 2 solitons have been generated.
