Abstract
We report on the observation of both single pulse and bound states of an environmentally stable all-polarization maintaining (PM) mode-locked laser based on a saturable absorber. The laser operates in the self-similar regime, and parabolic pulse spectra were obtained. The pulses could externally be compressed to 212 fs (single pulse) and 248 fs (bound states). Results of a numerical model are also presented. The model reveals important information about the criteria for obtaining pulses with parabolic temporal shape.
