Abstract
Recently similariton (or self-similar pulse) fiber lasers have attracted great attention due to their capabilities of highenergy pulse generation that could find different applications in science and industry. Moreover it is very important to reach stable pulse generation for the application as a frequency divider in optical frequency standard. Hybrid modelocking mechanism was used for obtaining stable similariton generation at 38 MHz pulse repetition frequency. It involves two types of mode-locking mechanisms in the cavity - saturation of carbon nanostructures absorber (recovery time Trt ~ 500 fs) and nonlinear polarization evolution based on the nonlinear Kerr-effect (Trt ~ 10 fs). It was shown that total intracavity dispersion should be slightly positive for generating stable similaritons with duration of less than 90 fs and spectral bandwidth of more than 50 nm at 11.2 mW output average power that could be further applied in an all-fiber MOPA setup.
