Abstract
We numerically investigate the output characteristics of dissipative solitons (DSs) in a thulium-doped fiber ring laser mode-locked by a semiconductor saturable absorber mirror (SESAM). It is shown that DSs could be formed with the SESAM acting as a mode-locker and a filtering-equivalent component. The pump power, together with the net-cavity dispersion, determines the properties of the generated DSs. The numerical results qualitatively match with previously reported experimental observations. The pulse compression of the generated DSs is numerically demonstrated by using a segment of single-mode fiber with anomalous dispersion as an external pulse compressor. The corresponding compressed pulses have a minimum duration of 450 fs.
