Passively modelocked fiber lasers operating in the soliton regime can generate pulses at multi-gigahertz harmonic repetition rates. The lasers are modelocked with an ultrafast saturable absorber and the low loss cavities support the formation of multiple equally spaced soliton pulses. These sources are potentially attractive for applications in high speed fiber optic communications systems. The design and construction of these laser sources as well as their application to spectrally sliced wavelength division multiplexed transmission is described.
