Abstract
In this work, we investigate the passive mode-locked Ytterbium-doped fiber laser based on the nonlinear polarization rotation technique. With the grating pairs inside laser cavity for the GVD compensation, the total cavity dispersion is operated within anomalous dispersion region. As the laser operates at fundamental mode locking, it generates 35 MHz repetition rate mode-locked pulse with 3.3 ps pulsewidth and the optical spectrum reveals obvious Kelly side. After adjusting the waveplate or increase the pump power, the 2nd HML to 6th harmonic mode locking (HML) is demonstrated in this laser. Besides, we also generated the bound states of multiple solitons whose separation of each pulse is about several tens of picosecond. The number of solitons and the separation between sequential pulses could be controlled so that it could be used in optical communication.
