Abstract
We demonstrate herein a PM-fiber based cavity design capable of supporting many different pulse dynamics, such as soliton propagation or dissipative solitons in a dispersion managed cavity. By changing the dispersion of the fiber Bragg grating of the cavity we modify the net cavity dispersion, and thus stimulate various pulse dynamics. In particular we demonstrate the first net normal cavity, all-PM, all-fiber, dipersion managed cavity operating the in the 2μm range. Furthermore, we also demonstrate an all-fiber all-PM MOPA system capable of delivering up to 6 W of average power at 16 MHz by direct amplification of 70 ps long narrowband pulses. The amplifier stages are not fully saturated and are currently limited by the pump power available.
