Abstract
We present stable dispersion-managed soliton (DMS) molecules in a passively mode-locked Yb-doped polarization-maintaining fiber laser based on chirped fiber Bragg grating in the anomalous dispersion regime. The generation of DMSs are characterized by their sech2-like spectral profile with no steep spectral edges, which is distinct from those of dissipative solitons generated in Yb-doped fiber lasers with a large net positive cavity group velocity dispersion regime. The pulse width is 4.8 ps if the sech2 profile is assumed. The corresponding pulses width could be compressed to 278 fs with grating pair compressor. Furthermore, DMS molecules exhibit multiple discrete equilibrium distances and a regular spectral modulation pattern. All these DMS molecules are stable in the sense that after being obtained they can remain several days. The proposed laser proves its great potential to future practical use in high-resolution optics for coding and optical communication.
