Ultrashort pulse (USP) fiber lasers have found applications in such various fields as frequency metrology and spectroscopy, telecommunication systems, etc. For the last decade, mode-locking (ML) fiber lasers have been under carefully investigations for scientific, medical and industrial applications. Also, USP fiber sources can be treated as an ideal platform to expand future applications due to the complex ML nonlinear dynamics with a presence of high value of group velocity dispersion (GVD) and the third order dispersion in the resonator. For more reliable and robust launching of passive mode-locking based on a nonlinear polarization evolution, we used a highly nonlinear germanosilicate fiber (with germanium oxides concentration in the core ~ 50 mol. %) inside the cavity and we have obtained ultrashort stretched pulses with a high peak power and energy. In this work relative intensity noise and frequency repetition stability is improved by applying isolator-polarizer (ISO-PM) with increased extinction ratio P<sub>ext</sub> and by compensation of intracavity group-velocity dispersion from the value β2 ~ - 0.021 ps<sup>2</sup> to ~ - 0.0053 ps<sup>2</sup> at 1550 nm. As a result, we have obtained the low-noise stretched pulse generation with duration ~ 180 fs at a repetition rate ~ 11.3 MHz (with signal-tonoise ratio at fundamental frequency ~ 59 dB) with Allan deviation of a pulse repetition frequency for 1 s interval ~ 5,7 * 10<sup>-9</sup> and a relative intensity noise < -101 dBc / Hz.
Today ultrashort pulse (USP) fiber lasers are in great demand in a frequency metrology field, THz pulse spectroscopy,
optical communication, quantum optics application, etc. Therefore mode-locked (ML) fiber lasers have been extensively
investigated over the last decade due the number of scientific, medical and industrial applications. It should be noted,
that USP fiber lasers can be treated as an ideal platform to expand future applications due to the complex ML nonlinear
dynamics in a laser resonator. Up to now a series of novel ML regimes have been investigated e.g. self-similar pulses,
noise-like pulses, multi-bound solitons and soliton rain generation. Recently, we have used a highly nonlinear
germanosilicate fiber (with germanium oxides concentration in the core ~ 50 mol. %) inside the resonator for more
reliable and robust launching of passive mode-locking based on the nonlinear polarization evolution effect in fibers. In
this work we have measured promising and stable ML regimes such as stretched pulses, soliton rain and multi-bound
solitons formed in a highly-nonlinear ring laser and obtained by intracavity group velocity dispersion (GVD) variation in
slightly negative region. As a result, we have obtained the low noise ultrashort pulse generation with duration < 250 fs
(more than 20 bound pulses when obtained multi-bound soliton generation with intertemporal width ~ 5 ps) at a
repetition rate ~ 11.3 MHz (with signal-to-noise ratio at fundamental frequency > 59 dB) and relative intensity noise
<-101 dBc / Hz.
